incision healing?
Wed, 12-23-2009 - 6:53pm

I had a c-section on the 12th and the doctor used glue to close the wound. I liked that it wasn't staples b/c it felt more secured but now the glue is coming off and when I looked at the wound; I can see I have a small hole in the middle of it. It looks like it started opening but healed. I am worried that the hole will be there indefinitely. I did bleed there a small bit the 1st couple of days and I still have glue of the sides where there is dried blood. I know he also used stitches so I am not worried about opening up or anything and I saw him on Monday and he said everything looked good.

Has this happened to anyone and did the hole close up? This is my 2nd section but the first was with staples and then steri strips so it was different.

Congratulations on your new little one! It was time time last year that I was in the final few days of preparation before my C section on the 29th!

I have always had internal stiches and external staples with steri strips, so
