Quick Question
Mon, 01-25-2010 - 3:18am
Hi everyone! This is my 1st time posting here and I have a quick question. I had a cesarean on Dec. 21 (due date was Jan. 12) because my daughter was breech. They wanted to do the section because I went into labor before they had time to turn her. Anyway....my incision has healed nicely but tonight I looked at it and it looks like I can see the end of a staple or something. I don't remember seeing it before but I have noticed a little bump there before when I touch it. I'm wondering if anyone else has had anything like this because I thought staples were only on the outside. I also haven't really taken the time to study my incision before because I was afraid of what it would look like and because w/ 2 little ones I just don't have time for anything. If anyone has any advice or experience with this please let me know.

Hi and welcome! I don't have any first hand experience with a situation like you describe, but hopefully someone will pop up with a similar experience...

If you have any gut instincts that something might be wrong, it would really be best to see your Doc.

G/L and I hope things are settling into a routine with two little ones! :)

I rejected three of my dissolvable sutures with my 1st section.
