So the magical 6 weeks pp arrived... along with a course of antibiotics as my c sec scar is infected - and for no obvious reason; dr said I'm just unlucky.

Recovery to this point was amazing, felt great, visible scar healed quickly, was out and about going to groups, getting on the bus at 4 weeks, then boom... soreness, lump under skin, dr wasn't sure so had to wait 3 more days until i was struggling to walk properly and now there's a small inch line of pus. Feel like we've regressed back to the beginning! Any other experiences or advice welcome on recovery from this point - google is too scary smile my biggest fear is the scar opening up.
