  • Well, for now, don't worry about it. If it really bothers you, you can get reconstruction. My gosh, sounds like you're remodeling your house! I had a second degree tear. That wasn't a whole lot of fun either. I know how you feel self conscious. My poor neighbor just had a baby and tore terribly and bled forever. She is NOT functioning properly and may need a colostomy bag.

  • Wow, idk. I tore pretty bad, but was too loopy to know to what degree. How do you even know what your back door looks like at this point?? As long as everything is working right, don't worry about it.
