Dr.Shilpitha Shanthappa kindly advise

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

actually c-sec needs normally 6-8weeks time for healing...
its common to have mild pain or stretch around the site..if this pain is more and associated with redness or any discharge or swelling, then plz visit doctor..
as c-sec is a major surgery it needs time fa healing..plz avoid doing strenous works, lifting heavy objects, doing household chores alone,standing fa long tym...u can have a walk which helps in relieving constipation and blood clots too..even a gud idea to introduce new baby to this world..


Thank you Dr shilpitha shanthappa
