Q:

A friend of mine had normal delivery on 13 jan 2018. She had got many stiches down under and was in pain after delivery.Its been almost 3 months and it has not healed. Seems stiches opened and there are hole like wounds that are not healing yet! She took second opinion and has been told that she will be cut again as wound has become hard and then re stiched! Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa; can you please guide whats the best thing to do?

Hi shreya,,,
If wound will not heal, then there are chances of infection.. and also hard scar tissue will be formed.. so, before doing re- episiotomy, the hard scar tissue is excised and then suturing is done.. fresh wound will be sutured well and gets healed faster and properly.. so go with the second opinion..
