Wow how rude of him! Of course you're in pain, you just had surgery to have your baby! You aren't doing anything wrong by what I'm thinking. I'm a ftm though, but that's my opinion.
My friend had a c section and she was in pain for two weeks. You just had a major surgery so of course it hurts. You're not doing anything wrong. You know what's best for you.
I had a morphine drip the first two days then sent home percocet, which I only took that day. I was fine within a free days, mostly because my boys were in the nicu, so I spent time there with the nurses who's help me... Healing was a breeze for me. But I agree its major surgery, they cut through alot and then stitch you inside, then either glue, staple or stitch you outside... I was glued and I was told that also made healing quicker
i had shots for pain (not sure of the name) the first day of my c-section, later that night i was taking tylenol 3s and ibuprofen alternating every 4 hours for 2 days and was sent home with the same stuff and used it for one day. i healed really well and had minimal pain, but everyone heals differently, my sister took her medicine for well over a week, i also took the ibuprofen once in a while the first week when i overdid it cleaning or chasing my kids around. remind him you just got 9 different layers of your skin cut open and sewed back together individually, its a major abdominal surgery!! you take medicine as you need it! have your doctor explain it to him if you need to. congratulations and i hope you heal well!
I was on perks while in the hospital, 2 every 4 hours, and i was in the hospital for 5 days and on bed rest. Then got sent home with oxycodones and have been on those for 6 days, 1 every 4 hours like clock work. If i don't then i am in a ridiculous amount of pain. I had my little man march 30 and today is the first day i haven't taken any pain meds. The docs said i hurt so bad because i was in such good shape before being prego that they had to cut through more muscle than other people.
I was in pain on and off until 6 weeks after he was born. It was hell plus i bled alot too. I would spot then bleed heavy then spit then bleed real heavy for 6 weeks as well
