I AM SO FRUSTRATED WITH MY INCISION! I HAD MY C SECTION ON THE 5TH AND IT OPENED FROM A HEMATOMA ON THE 13TH. WHAT CAUSES THAT TO HAPPEN? I KNOW THAT ITS A POCKET OF BLOOD/FLUID THAT PUSHES AND COMES OUT BUT WHY DOES THAT EVEN HAPPEN? IT IS SO DISGUSTING TO KNOW THAT ITS OPEN. IS THERE ANYTHING THAT I CAN DO TO MAKE IT HEAL FASTER??

Welcome to the board and congrats on your recent birth. I am so sorry to hear that your incision has opened. Unfortunately it is a common occurrence that does happen to more women then you may think. The best thing to do for healing is follow the directions and instructions of your doctor, I know that's probably not what you wanted to hear, however there is no quick fix for this.

Keep us posted and let us know how your healing goes.

I'm so sorry that you're experiencing this complication. I trust that you've been back to your doctor and they've given you antibiotics and steri strips?? I hope your healing goes quickly! Good luck!!
