  • Like last year or like a few days ago? If it is leaking or pusing then call the doctor. White could mean an infection as well, once its green then its been infected for awhile and you don't want that. So call your doctor and see what they say. Better safe then sorry.

  • Its probably ok but i'd call the nurse at L&D they should be able to help answer your question.

  • i had a c-section also almost 4 months ago. Mine never oosed like big amounts.. but it did have a little but only on the strips. I would still call your dr if its a lot. but if its a tiny tiny bit and not green or any funky colors but clear i would say your fine.
