Hard Stomach After C Section
Can internal scar from c section be felt when pressed on? Section 4 months ago, since soon after can feel hard area few cm above external scar.
Can c section (14 weeks ago) cause PID? Had abdomen, back and hip pain since few weeks after section.
No: A Cesarian in not likely to cause PID 14 weeks later. Days to 1 to 2 weeks after a Cesarian delivery, an infection can develop in the uterine incision, the endometrial- myometrial tissues (endomyometritis) ...the surrounding organs, Falopian tubes, ovaries parametria....not 14 weeks later. Would be valuable to seek a Gyn reevaluation to determine the cause and get a treatment of your symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Had an emergency c section 3 weeks ago,now right before a bowel movement it's really painful then ok right after?
It could easily be: normal and just part of the normal scar healing process. There could be some scar tissue forming that stretches and causes pain when the adjacent colon fills with stool and resolves with passage. As the healing progresses it may disappear. Or not...an adhesion may form. Watch and wait a bit...if worsens/persists, return to your Doctor. Congratulations on your baby! ...Read more
Hi Dr ,its 1 month now for c section.. can i tie belt to my tummy and how long c section scars and pain will be?
Should be fine: One month after a c-section without complications, it should be just fine to wear a belt. The pain should be gradually going away. How long that takes varies just as there is a variation in peoples pain threshold and the scar will continue healing and the scar tissue will change/mature/fade for thew next 6 months or so (again this varies from woman to woman). Hope this helps. ...Read more

What are the chances of having a vaginal birth after a c section. I have only had one child via c section 4 years ago. After only dilation wasn't happening after 17 hours?
Pretty good: Vaginal birth after c/section (VBAC) has a pretty good success according to current research. You must work closely with your OB. Research shows 4/10 women with VBAC may still have to have a c/section . These labors need to be monitored carefully in a hospital equipped to respond to an emergency during the labor and have experience monitoring VBAC patients. Talk to your OB for more advice ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hemorrhoids?: Hemorrhoids are the most common cause of rectal bleeding after pregnancy. You don't need to have had a vaginal delivery to have them, and they can be either internal or external. Other causes are anal fissures and colon polyps. It's unlikely that it has anything to do with the cesarean specifically. I would ask your doctor for a referral to a colorectal specialist to look into it (literally). ...Read more

Can we tie a cotton cloth on abdomen post a c sec to tighten the muscles and incision had a c sec 3 weeks back?
Post C-section: For continuity of care and since the OB/GYN surgeon who performed your c-section knows your case and post operative course the best, it is very important to simply call them and ask about what you can and can not do regarding the post operative course. Most surgeons will want to see you post operatively anyway and then you are assured to be getting the best advice and care. Best wishes. ...Read more
