C-Section Incision gone mad!! LeeAnne Porter 3 kids; Chalmette, Louisiana 33 posts

Ok. My posts are usually long, so please bare with me!!



I had my third child, only c-section with a tubal ligation on April 1st, bc my DS wanted to come out "butt first" on April Fools Day. :) anywho... The left side of my incision has not healed properly and has a slight brownish funk on the bandaids when I change it. its not bleeding, but it very pink and painful. I went for my two week follow up, and the dr removed the steri-strips, cleaned the wound, put a bandaid on it a.d gave me a Z-pack and Bactroban ointment to put on it three times a day! I go back in two more weeks.



Has ANYONE else had this happen?? How long did it take to heal?

When I had my last c-section with a tubal, the middle of my incision was not fully healed, pink and very painful. I was put on antibiotics and also had a brown discharge. My OB had me use maxi pads over the incision to help keep it dry and it took a couple of weeks to finish healing. I hope this helps.

If it starts leaking I would go to the hospital ASAP. Mine leaked & I had a BAD infection in it...my incision had pseudomonas and e-coli in it smh...I was on IV meds 3 times a day for 2 weeks.
