Post subject: c-section scar
I think a stitch has come out (or wasn't stitched in 1st place), it looks like just enough gap for 1 stitch, has anyone else had this?

Got mw coming tomorrow anyway so can show her, but wondered what they'll do, re-stitch or leave it to heal over.

Maybe shouldn;t have been lifting Alex after all Embarassed

I had staples, and these were removed after 5 days when I was still in hospital. Is it gaping? Otherwise, in theory, you should be fine

Are they stitching which needs cutting out? Or dissolvable ones?
Your scar should have healed over on that top layer by now, mine looked back together by the end of day 1 :/

there is a hole, just a small one about 2 or 3mm wide and it bleeds slightly (altho very very light).

To me that sounds like a possible infection, you should get a doctors appointment and ask for antibiotics. Its nothing terrible, it should heal normally afterwards but a whole just doesn't sound right to me. Are you still under the care of the triage by any chance? I called them up for weeks afterwards asking stupid questions, give them a quick call just in case you need to get it sorted sooner rather than later. Oh and rest Smile xx

What did the midwife say hun? I had a small gap in the centre of the scar where it just wouldnt go together and the midwife said I had to get the doctor to give me some anti b's. Like you, I just carried on lifting my hefty lump of a Harry-bo and I dont think it helped but when they are crying and its just you on your own you dont have much choice.
