I have to visit my midwife and discuss some options for a tear that didn’t heal properly. I had torn upwards during the birth which split my labia minora apart on the right side. I had to go to the hospital (after a home birth) to get it stitched up but I discovered a couple weeks later that the stitches must have dissolved or torn because the two ends of the labia tear had healed on their own, not attached.
I am supposed to find out how to reattach the skin, cauterize???, and if it is even worth it.
has anyone heard of this, experienced it at all? should I just leave it be and move on?
It is only aesthetic as far as I can tell, but I hope it doesn't cause problems later. I also had a traumatic experience while in the hospital with the surgeon so now I am really hesitant in returning for a second surgery.
any suggestions or comment would help.
