Bleeding Incision r a b b i t ™ Somewhere, US, United States 27547 posts

Last night I started pouring blood from my c-section incision. My husband called 911 and I was rushed off to the hospital. By the time I got there, the bleeding had stopped and they told me the hematoma beneath my incision had likely burst and the blood just found its way out through a weak point in the incision. All day today, I've been feeling great. Now in the last hour the incision is swelling a little bit, it hurts bad enough that I took a Percocet with my motrin and now I see a few spots of blood on my panties from where they were touching my incision. Can this be the hematoma still draining? And is it normal for the incision to still be swelling a week after surgery?

My incision was swelling for two weeks after my c-section. I'm not sure about the hematoma. GL mama.
