Healing CSection?

Does anyone that has had a csection had the surgi-strips? And also is this normal- my repeat c-section is healing and one side is like a huge gap and looks like its got puss coming out and looks like it wasnt stitched tightly enough? Idk how else to describe it but it looks nasty!

  • I havent had the strips..But about the second apart. I have had 2 c-setions as well. And well that happened to me too. If u have a fever and puss coming out, then u should go to the doctor because it could be an infection. But i would just wash it good with just some warm water. NO SOAP. But if it ends up hurting alot i would go into the doctor. Mine healed on its own....Good luck

  • I didnt have the strips, and no mine didnt look like that. i would keep an eye on it. if it get any worst go to the doctor or call your doctor now but most likely they will tell you to come in

  • I would have your doctor or midwife take a look at you today.
