C-section questions

Anyone else have/had a slow closing wound?

Im completely cracking up, 14 weeks now and theres just one wee bit that wont close. Its not infected (swabs taken) , so GP is not concerned. Ive just been given creams but thats it. Still to avoid walking too far, no hills, not lifting heavy stuff. Driving me crazy. Just stuck indoors most of the time, I dont drive and live in a hilly area so just do small walks on my own when hubby is at work.

Any tips? dont think there is anything to be done except wait. *sigh*

Hi mine closed up fine so I can't say I'm experiencing what you are. Not sure what to advise but I hope it will heal soon x

I'm still in pain and can't lift my legs as far as before wen getting in car etc it's weird

I had "granulation" which is where just one side of my "smile" was kinda inside out. I went back to the doctors and they weren't concerned, they just said it would take a little longer and be a bit tender. I just took it easy and eventually healed. All in good time xx
