I just had my second section two weeks ago. Let me start off by saying, the second one was ten times easier than the first. I didn't even need the pain meds at first. It was only when I started getting up and around that I really needed it. I have even stopped bleeding almost entirely. Which beats the 8 weeks from last time.
So the only nitpick I have about it is, they made me get the catheter before the spinal, even though I had asked them not to.
Wait, I have one more. The after care was awesome except the lady made me take off the bandage before I showered, and they had placed it on top of some hair, which unfortunately was like getting a bikini wax.
So, anyway, that part is over thank goodness. I even got to go home on day two.
Last time, I had a hole in my incision for a while. Can't remember how long as it was two years ago.
Now this time I have two small holes. How long should I expect them to stay there? They are getting smaller, and the nurse and the doctor said it was okay and probably due to the fact that I picked my two year old up, and split a little bit due to that.
So as long as my incision isn't red and swollen or hot to the touch, should I worry about it?
