Hello, I had my emergency c-section on Nov 30. And I was wondering-does everyone get a follow up appointment after 6 weeks? It feels too late. I was expecting them to ask me to come in about a week or two to make sure that everything is all right. But 6 weeks?... Is this normal usual practice?

Me (33), DH (42), DS ( 13,5 months , born 6 weeks early)

My dr had me come in at 1 week to get my staples out. Other than that I didn't go back in until 6 weeks.

I had my staples back in the hospital and then wasn't seen for 6 weeks. Of course they tell you that if you have any sort of oozing, itching, foul smelling discharge from your incision that you should make an appointment to be seen.

I had my staples out at the hospital and the Dr wants to see me again in two weeks. I think it might just depend on your Dr.

I had my staples out at a week postpartum. My dr inspected the incision & acked about my bleeding but that was about it. He did say any problems call right away.
