My recovery has been pretty good this time around, though I am 6 weeks pp and still having light bleeding. I saw my dr yesterday and she said it's normal. But with my first it took forever to get better.
I had a severe tear with dd and after 3 weeks we discovered it was infected. My first clue should have been that even after 3 weeks I was having pain when I sat, stood for more than 15 min, walked for any length of time, stayed in any one postition...but I ignored my body until one day I passed out in the shower. Thankfully my dh was in the shower with me, otherwise I could have been seriously hurt. I needed antibiotics and to use my sitz bath four times a day. And I bled with her for 7 weeks. It was a very long time before I felt comfortable sitting down without a bulky pad cushioning my bottom.
In your case I would try to take it as easy as possible and maybe see your care provider just to make sure that you're healing well.
