I can't say I've been sterilized (it'll be DH who is, not myself) however I have had laparoscopic surgery done. It took (me personally) about 2 weeks to start to feel better and maybe 3-4 weeks to completely heal. It's very normal for them to sting and itch quite a bit, as it's them healing. You want to make sure they stay clean and you don't pick or rub roughly against them.

For now, I would abstain from sex until your doctor gives you a go ahead and avoid lifting heavy things for now. My doctor said to not lift my daughter for at least 1 week+ and to not push myself. I didn't find soaking in a bath helped, but others might. Try a few different things and see what helps. If you're going to hold your child on your lap, make sure you use a pillow over them.

Hello,

It is natural for the surgical site to be painful after stitch. However if there is intense pain then it can be due to infection of the bump. In such a case, the overlying skin is red, warm and painful. Then a course of topical and oral antibiotics is needed.


I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
