re-post... Has anyone ever had a reaction to the stiches from their c-section incision?

Apparently I am having a reaction to my dissolving stiches and was told by my doc I just have to wait for them to dissolve...which might take 6 more weeks! Anyone else have this and if so were you able to do anything for it?

  • Sorry you are experiencing that. I had staples but I thought I would check out your question in case I could help. Sorry, I don't think I have any relative advice. Hope things get better so you can just enjoy your new baby. Congrats.

  • I appreciate your responce but unfortunately I can't understand what you said?? Are you saying you had 2 c-sections and both times had a reaction to the stiches? And that your doctor told you to rub the stictches??
