Post subject: Couple of c-section questions plz
Those of you that have had planned c-sections recently, did you have to wear those awful white sock things?
Also when you have a planned c-section do you have to remove all your jewellery, I really can't remember whether I took all my jewellery off last time I was in although I had a crash section anyway so can't imagine if I was wearing any they took the time to remove it

Yes and yes I was told no nail varnish, no make up, no jewellery and even no deoderant i'm sure they will have taken you jewellery off last time, but maybe you were already out by then, I (vaguely) remember having my removed by 3 different nurses in the bit where they put you out with my emergency section as it can interefere with the equipment ,
the white socks are to help prevent DVT and I've had to wear them for every c section and every op I've had even for lap and dyes were you're up and about very quickly , but once up and about you can take them off xx

I had Lola almost a year ago at St Marys in Manchester. I had to wear those socks for a few days but got irritated and took them off!
I had to remove everything but kept my nose stud in and they were fine with that. I was also told no make up but that was never going to happen with me, the drugs they put through me really irritated me and my eyes were streaming so wish I'd listened to that one haha! Xx
