My mother had a C-section for 3 children, and after the 3rd child, her stitch hurts. What could she do to improve? Medications recommendations? Thanks!

Painful stitches: First, it depends on how long the stitches have been in place. It may be time to have them removed. If they have been in place over a week and if there is any redness around them, they may be causing an inflammatory response. I suggest that she see her OB to take a look at her C/S wound. Infection can be very serious and better to be safe and have that surgical site checked out. ...Read more

The examining doctor can than order a psychiatric evaluation by a specific psychiatrist who is familiar with military psychiatric entry requirements.

Although, on occassion, a recruiter might ask you to with-hold this information, to increase your likelihood of enlisting, you don't want to have enter the military with a fradulent enlistment. You could face legal consequences in the future if you enlist fradulently. It is best just to be honest and to advise the doctor who evaluates you of the circumstance of the suicidal behaviors.
