I have a 7mm endometrioma of my cesarean scar and is very painful during my period. Should I have this removed?
If u had cesarean a month ago can u be able to wet ur scar the fatter u r does that mean ur scar will take longer to heal?
Ok if healed: If the scar is healed then getting wet is fine. If there is discharge, leaking or the wound is open, then dressing changes are used until healed. The more fat, the longer it can take to heal. Rarely, it needs to be closed at a second operation. The best thing to do is to check with your doctor. ...Read more
Hello. My wife did a cesarean section last month. And now the left side of the scar is hurting really bad. The right side is all okay. Why is that?
Healing: It takes 6-9 months for pain from cesarean to go away. Eventually for nearly 99% of women the pain will go away completely withe time. Sometimes there is a trapped nerve that needs to be treated with steroid injections and pain medication injections, but that's fairly rare.

The wound needs to be drained, flushed and then packed with wet gauze (or its equivalent) and the dressing needs to be changed twice daily for up to many weeks. It will heal from the inside out and once it heals completely the scar will look the same as if the wound had not opened. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
