Hello, sorry to hear you've had a hard time. I don't have any experience but just wanted to pop on to suggest you post this in the Childbirth section. Most people here will be having straight for their specific post natal club so they might miss your post (incidentally I had my baby in October too and there's a lovely bunch of ladies on the October 2012 post natal club if you want to join!)

Hello...I'm here for some advice really. I had my baby in October. Failed ventouse, forceps delivery. I had stitches for the episiotomy. Five days later they were found to be infected so I was put on antibiotics. About a week later the doctor said the stitches had come open and I was left with an open wound. I gave taken ten courses of antibiotics in total and I think I now have reacted to that...ruby yellow discharge for the last eight weeks.

I was eventually referred to a gynae who has given me a date for cutting and re stitching along the perineum. I'm looking forward to it because it could mean and end in sight to all this horrible time I've seen. But I'm also nervous and don't know what to expect. Has anyone here been through this or similar? I would really appreciate some advice. Thank you.
