Dear, those are not abdominal stitches..

If I take pain killer I feel relief n no pain.. So, Wat to do??

It takes time and do consult ur gync before taking any medicines.

why don't you talk to your gynaecologist about this? as she will examine and give a perfect advice. 
you can sit in a tub with warm water for some time.. might help..

Sitting in a warm water bath with some epsom salt mixed in it 2-3 times a day works wonders.

I do sit in a warm water tub once in a day, still it s taking time to come out Of that discomfort... Becoz of this am unable to concentrate on my baby 😒😒😒.. My baby keeps crying for Bf where as I don't even show  interest as I can't stick on to one place for some time Becoz  of stitches hurt.. Feeling bad 😟😟😟😟

Hey it will take minimum 20 to 25 days to heal up if you take rest n follow your doctors instructions....human body takes such time to recover it completely...have patience dear I understand your condition. I went thru this phase dear.....keep pouring warm water 2 3 times on your stitches avoid any pressure and plz do not sit or stand for long only sit for feeding your baby...take lots of water n keep applying the ointment given by your doc...all will okay soon...take care hugs to you Mom😍😍😘thanks for the tag sonam patel😊

I forgot to tell you not to take any medicine without your doctor's advice it won't b good for your baby as your baby is on bf.please bear the pain little more dear talk to you gynea

Pain killer was given by my gyno itself Sheeba Rizvi.
