Hi, I'm new to the forums, just found this site looking for support online. I had my first c-section 14 weeks ago, it was awful from the start. I could hardly walk for weeks, I had to use a step ladder to get in and out of bed, etc... the usual pains I would assume from a c/s.
Around 4 weeks after I got an infection, I've been on 2 rounds of anti-biotics and had to use baxtroban cream too, nothing worked. At about 8 weeks I went to clean out my incision and it had split open on the one side, about an inch...the other side has a small, deep hole. Now, it's been 14 weeks, I've gotten 4 applications of Silver Nitrate to help with the 'healing from the inside out' - I'm at the dr at least once a week...I just feel helpless, like this will never heal...14 weeks...I feel like I'm missing out on my daughters first few months...
Anyone else had an awful healing experience like this?
I would agree that this is not the norm. I have had 3 c-sections. My first had terrible complications (not the same as you have had) but my last two were a breeze. I am sorry you are going through so much.
That's terrible!!!! I was pretty good to go after like four weeks - my incision is still sore from time to time, six months later. I hear that you're never completely the same. I hope they can do something for your immune system to help healing -
