I had my son April 16th . he weight 8 blz 4oz . got 3rd degree tear . they gave me 12 stitches . it took two weeks for the stitches to come out , but it still hurt a little when I sit a certain way or for to long but it not as bad pains as it was at first. I guess it might take a month for everything to be back to normal . depending on how fast your body heals.
thank you for your reply? I wanted to know if you suffer any incontinence of bowel movement, i am bit worried as they put on laxatives for at least six months!
I had 2 tears one a 2nd degree and one a third degree. I had my son the 24th and my stiches are alrwady healing. They gave me pain kills so I had some constipation put a nice stool softener helped a bunch. And get some tucks pads and sitz bath they will both be a god sent!
My baby was born on April 14th and was 9lb 7oz. I was completely healed by the 28th. I did 2 sitz baths a day, used tucks pads and hydrocortisone cream. I also used stool softeners
