1 Bump

when you had a c-section?

Did you have staples, or stitches, or both? Just wondering.

  • I had one running stitch as well!
    It's really painful the first couple of days, but you start to feel like your old self again within a week.

  • I had staples with two of them, one had to be reopened from a wound seroma. One c-section the doctor used high strength steri strips and it healed well except I had an allergic reaction to the benzoin tincture.

  • One stitches, 2 staples. Staples were way better.

  • 3 years ago, I had staples. Having the same dr, will probably have them again.

  • Two c-sections...first one 22 years ago was stitches...second one, almost 17 years ago was staples. I thought the stitches were a lot less uncomfortable.
