I hope someone can please advise me- I am nearly 4 weeks post c-section and I woke up this morning to find my wound bleeding, bright red blood. I wiped the area clean and it looks like a tiny section of the wound has opened up. I am really panicking as DP is due back at work tomorrow and cant take anymore time off.
I thought the outside of the wound had fully healed up so this has taken me by surprise. Is this normal? How could this have happened?
CJ exactly the same happened to me. I am 5 weeks post section now and last Monday it looked as if about 1cm in the middle was opening up. I have been cleaning it meticulously, put a little dressing on it to keep it dry and it seems to be fine now. I would say if any of the area around it is red or inflammed, any pus or bad smell or pain / fever you need to get checked asap.
I think I was physically doing to much which caused mine to bleed - take it as easy as poss!
