To think you can still eat food with salt in it after a c-section?

Prepared to be told I'm wrong. So, is food with salt allowed after a c-section? Assuming there are no hypertension problems or other problems.

TeeHollyandTeeIvy Fri 23-Nov-12 21:03:25

Yes. You can eat whatever you want after a CS.

CarpeJugulum Fri 23-Nov-12 21:03:44

No one told me it wasn't?!

Fakebook Fri 23-Nov-12 21:04:36

Hmm. So she IS just being a fucking bitch as always.

Posterofapombear Fri 23-Nov-12 21:04:52

Never heard of this. I wolfed down a ton of it after mine grin

PandaNot Fri 23-Nov-12 21:05:08

I can't see why not, and I've had two sections. No one has told me not to. confused

Loislane78 Fri 23-Nov-12 21:05:17

Why do you think you would you not be able to? Unless you have some medical reasons etc., its totes fine.

DorsetKnob Fri 23-Nov-12 21:05:47

Two sections here and that is a new one on me.

TeeHollyandTeeIvy Fri 23-Nov-12 21:05:54

I mean, they made me wait about 12 hours after mine before I could eat anything I wanted, but there was no restriction about salt.

Mrsjay Fri 23-Nov-12 21:05:55

who told you not to and why ? not that I had a section just wondering

CaliforniaLeaving Fri 23-Nov-12 21:05:59

Yes, I had no restrictions on food and ate everything I could get my hands on I was starving.

Heavywheezing Fri 23-Nov-12 21:06:57

unless you are going to rub it on your scar, I can't see why not

Mrsjay Fri 23-Nov-12 21:08:36

My sil had a baby yesterday. I made her chicken soup today and sent it in with my dad. My brother just bought it back and said she can't eat it because its got salt in it and the doctors have told her not to eat salt as it will infect her section scar. hmm

I sent in a whole bag of unused clothes of my ds's aswell. No thanks or anything.

Loislane78 Fri 23-Nov-12 21:10:47

That's priceless, since when has ingested salt infected scars? hmm

Mrsjay Fri 23-Nov-12 21:11:08

salt infecting a scar confused old doctor told me years ago to have a salt bath too avoind infection in my stomach scars, that really is a new one on me

LalyRawr Fri 23-Nov-12 21:11:19

I thought salt was a disinfectant?

Salt in wounds hurts like hell, but it cleans it!

TeeHollyandTeeIvy Fri 23-Nov-12 21:11:26

She's insane. Just keep telling yourself that. And an ungrateful cow.

Fakebook Fri 23-Nov-12 21:11:50

She's just doing it because she hates me. What a bitch. Now my DH is getting pissed off with me ranting about it.

KermitRuffinsTrumpet Fri 23-Nov-12 21:11:58

I'll have your chicken soup grin

[Hopeful]

She sounds like a shiteater.

ImAlpharius Fri 23-Nov-12 21:12:09

Isn't salt good to ward against infections?

DorsetKnob Fri 23-Nov-12 21:13:49

Salt is great for wounds.

TeeHollyandTeeIvy Fri 23-Nov-12 21:13:57

That is true. When you have oral surgery they tell you to gargle with salt water to prevent infection.

She's a cow.

Fakebook Fri 23-Nov-12 21:14:08

Yes. Salt is a preservative and prevents things from going off. I was going to send in my arnica tablets too, but I'll let the bitch suffer the pain now.

Mrsjay Fri 23-Nov-12 21:14:13

yes salt is a natural cleanser you are supposed to gargle with salt after getting a tooth out. your SIL was being weird and ill have your soup
