Re: Post c-section internal tear

I did tear my incision open a couple of weeks after birth. I took it easy, made sure it was kept clean and dry. It closed back up again but was sore for a few days.

You can get it checked out by the doctor if you want. The main problem if you are not losing blood is infection setting in. If it is still hurting and getting worse I would probably see about seeing your obgyn. Also since it is reopened you probably want to take it easy for a few days the same as you would have done when you first came home from the hospital.

If you have the overhanging tummy problem(I do) you can lay flat on your bed and use a hair dryer set on low to dry out the incision site.

I am glad the baby is ok.
