Can a suture dehiscence heal itself? Or does it need to be reclosed?  Surgeon said its normal but getting a 2nd opinion. 1wk post lymph node removal.

Complete Toolkit: Sutures hold tissue together for faster healing. If after removal, the incision opens, then the body springs into action. Inflammation (red, hot, swelling, pain) occur as a natural process which make things heal. Keep the wound covered and changed dressing every other day or so. Avoid peroxide, alcohol, betadine, hibiclenas and motrin/advil as these slow down healing. Protect it from trauma. ...Read more

My ob found dehiscence of low-t scar during 2nd c/s delivery @39w (bw 9lb; 16m interdelivery interval). I want a 3rd & last pregnancy. How would you manage risk of rupture--including spontaneous risk?

My ob found dehiscence of low-t scar during 2nd c/s delivery @39w (bw 9lb; 16m interdelivery interval). I want a 3rd & last pregnancy. How would you manage risk of rupture--including spontaneous risk?

At Time of Surgery: If determined to have another pregnancy, the best help would have been at time of surgery with a two layer closure of the uterine opening. Docs argue about best interval time but logically waiting over a year before conceiving appears to decrease risk of rupture. Lastly, the most dangerous thing is beyond your control since an accreta is your highest risk & unpreventable. A good OB - priceless! ...Read more
