What helped you heal faster? & how many c sections have you had?
I have had 2 csections.. my last one was in November. After about 2 weeks I felt pretty good and not much pain anymore. Make sure you clean it often and follow the directions the hospital gives you... don't want an infection! Move around alot but don't over do it.
the first time it took so long. I didnt get up to walk until 3 days post csection. the second time i was determined to heal faster. I walked when i was first allowed to, which was 12 hours post csection. from then on things got better. I was able to walk, able to do alot of things as opposed to my first
1 c section and it took me 3 months to heal mine got infected so it took longer to heal
Took me almost six months to recover for mine. I was put to sleep for an emergency c section. after a few weeks i developed a necrosis infection which they waited to remove until it was down to my organs. Had to unpack and pack it once daily then moved to twice daily. My experience with a c section was awful. I rested a lot. But did get up to take care of my daughter and do some cleaning. Mild excercsing does help with healing and of course sleep (: i still get pain where my incision and infection incisions are.
I only had 1 csection, but walking, walking, and then more walking helped a lot with the healing. Plus, it was a nice activity to do with new baby :).
ETA: My pain was pretty much gone by 1.5-2 weeks, and I think I was completely back to normal by about 6 weeks.
ETAA: Don't touch your scar at all, and don't touch around the scar. when you shower let the water run over it well, I would soap up the higher part of stomach and the soapy water ran over it a little. Keep anything in contact with the incision clean until you know it looks pretty sealed on the outside.
