did you bleed from your csection incision?

If so how long did it take to stop? Or did you have to go to the doctor to get it taken care of?

  • Anon- She shouldn't be bleeding at all from her incision. She needs to get to the hospital.

  • A VERY small amount is normal...but anything other than a few drops should be brought to the attention of your Dr. You really shouldn't be bleeding from your incision after you are home from the hospital. You should call and talk to your Dr's office and tell them exactly what's going on and ask if you need to come in. I know it's the weekend, but they usually have a triage nurse on call to speak to.

  • I bled from the very end of my incision. I went to my OB for it twice and she said it wasn't infected, just to continue cleaning it. I would still get to the doctor as soon as you can get an appointment, just to make sure.

  • I bled from my incision quite a bit, I just kept one of the hospital pads over it to absorb the blood.
