Post subject: Stiches
I was not too sure where i should post this.
I had 3rd degree tearing whilst giving birth to my little girl and lots of stiches!!
Two weeks on they are still very sore, it hurts whilst i walk and sit down. Also when i look in the mirror the wound is open and has a bit of puss in it, sorry!!
Is this normal or should i be worried? Im not enjoying my baby as much as i want to as I want to get out and do things with her but cant because of the pain.
What can i do?

I had a 2nd/3rd degree tear, my stitches have healed but I now have an infection, 2 and a half weeks after having Poppy. Go to your dr and get things checked out. I did this morning and am now on anti-biotics. I had the same problem that I wasn't enjoying my little girl because of the pain. It's an awful pain isn;t it? Really interferes with everything you do. Alternatively your midwife should check your stitches if you need her to, mine does.
Hope things get better soon,

Did you see the dr Tracie? Hope they got you sorted. It will get better I'm sure. Thanks for the comment about Poppy Devonmum. My infection is starting to get better, helps to put things in perspective a bit when the pain eases.
Hope all getting better for both of you Milillamb and Tracie
