So i had a c section last tuesday on the 17th and was sent home fri evening.
They had me keep the binder to wear at home. [The band that they wrapped around my stomach and incision to hold things in place]
i have to wear it when im up and walking around but when im layind down i can take it off.
my question is.....

I have had 2 c-sections and never had a binder. they took the staples out a couple days after I was released and then I had steri stripes on til they fell off on their own. Just take it easy, no heavy lifting, don't exert yourself for the first couple of weeks and you should be fine to take it off right now.
