Its easy to start to feel better quickly and then overdo it and be back to square one. I found that taking my prescribed medication on time whether I felt I needed it or not made a big difference and I definitely second comfy clothes-I carried on wearing maternity leggings and big knickers for at least 2 months-worth it!!! Congratulations on your beautiful newborn xx
I had an ELCS 3 weeks ago. everything has been remarkably smooth recovery wise, but now that I'm hone and doing more (still not lifting but twisting and bending over more etc), my scar has become more tender and on the right side of the scar there seems to be a slightly swollen area which is tender to touch.
There is no discolouration except for residual bruising, no heat, no redness and no temperature, so am pretty sure here is no wound infection. The incision is neat and reasonably straight, dry and has been exposed to the air for over 2 weeks.
