i had a c section exactly two weeks ago... the first 2 nights i got a morphine button that i could push every 10 mins which helped me out A LOT! then they switched me to percocet, i had my c section on Friday the 18Th at 7 pm and was out of the hospital on Sunday by noon... the doctor was really surprised with how well my incision and i was doing..
they didn't have stitch or staple me up on the outside.
i couldn't sleep in bed for the first 4 days i was home because when id get up with my daughter it would feel like something was tearing inside of me.. so i slept in the recliner.
i started sleeping in bed and i started feeling the tearing sensation again, it hurts a lot almost every time i have a couple tears, it also happens when i get in and out of my boyfriends pickup.
but the other day i was standing in the closet and turned to leave the area and it felt like my muscle right above my incision was ripping apart, the pain was so bad i almost passed out.
Ive read some and saw that numbness was common, so I'm not so worried about that.
i looked at my incision the other day and where i feel the tearing sensation there is a scab, its the color of blood not pus, so i know its not infection,.
i think i may have tore open my incision, my doc did'nt seem too concerned about it since it wasn't a pussy color or liquid draining, i was just wondering if anyone had felt the same muscle tearing sensation and what it might possibly be??
oh and also on the right side of my incision its really hard like there is a rock under my skin, any ideas??
