Mine is pretty bad too. I was silly enough to grab a mirror and look whats its looks like. Nearly fainted :( it looks horrible. Im too scared to even go to toilet in case my stiches come apart. I dont think I will be falling pregnant anytime soon!
Wow:( and some people brag that it's better to tear r.r lol
You guys are lucky to have gotten an episiotomy. My doctor let me rip, which is worse. I had to have a lot of stitches and every period for the first two days the scar tissue hurts so bad I can barely walk.
Mine was horrible horrible recovery! And lasted like more than 6 weeks for sure.. it was painful,,, but it might be how bad he cut me.. :(
I had my baby last Sunday and I feel pretty normal like before now I had a 2nd degree epistiomy
Haha cherubskeeper you had me freaked out for a moment. I was like take what out? Did they leave something inside of me! Lol
Sorry read that wrong....thought you said epidural. I had a second degree episiotomy with my first and it took a long time to heal....the spitz bath helped a lot and the numbing spray. ...sit on soft surfaces and try to take it easy. ..it will heal over time.
With my first I was fine the next day. But with my second I was in pain for a few weeks. They had problems putting it in and it didn't take, half my body was numb the other was not. The area they put it in was bruised. Talk to your dr he may have tips to ease the pain and help it heal faster.
