will walking is helpful on healing fast ??

Sonali Shivlani

Stitches can take upto 15 days to heal. Please do not walk excessively as this will rub the stitches and slow the healing process. Please read my article on post partum care which will give you more details on stitch care.


thnks sonali ....not excessively but will lil bit walk aftr every meal is beneficial??as my mil is insisitng for it....as not to take full time bed rest !!

walking is not preferred, infact you should take proper rest and more of lying down.

stitches take time to heal...
apply betadine on stitches...
wash them with warm water...
4-5 times a day...and then apply betadine each time..

this will help u definitely....i did this...
