Recently, many new mothers are asking about postoperative care and diet of caesarean section. Today, Xingxing’s mother specially sorted out a series of questions about caesarean section and attached a healthy menu to promote postpartum recovery. You should be patient to read it! I believe it will be helpful to you ~! Cesarean section is completely different from vaginal delivery. The surgical wound is large and wide, which does great harm to women’s vitality. In this sense, it can be regarded as a major operation. And it is easy to have many complications and sequelae, so mothers of caesarean section must pay attention to self-care and nursing after operation. Only in this way can they recover quickly!

(I) insist on rehydration

Prevent blood concentration and thrombosis. Pregnant women consume more and eat less during childbirth. In addition, the blood during pregnancy is hypercoagulable, so it is easy to form thrombosis, induce pulmonary embolism and lead to sudden death. Therefore, three days after operation, we often infusion to replenish water and correct dehydration. In addition, drinking and fasting are prohibited within 6 hours after operation, and some fluids such as warm boiled water, millet juice and steamed eggs can be eaten after 6 hours. On the second day after operation, after turning over in bed, you can exhaust normally. Before exhaust, you can eat porridge, crucian carp soup, chicken soup, whole soup and other liquids, but avoid milk and sweets. After exhaust, semi liquid food such as noodles and chaos can be eaten. On the third day after operation, after pulling out the urinary catheter, the patient can get out of bed and eat an ordinary diet. There are glucose and antibiotics in the delivered liquid, which can prevent infection and fever and promote wound healing. Do not refuse or require reduction due to fear of pain and boredom.

(II) try to use upper limb intravenous infusion

Because the glucose in the supplemented liquid and some drugs can stimulate the venous wall and induce thrombosis, the lower limb vein is more likely to promote thrombosis once it is damaged and inflamed, so the upper limb is used for postpartum rehydration. Parturient women cannot require lower limb infusion for convenience.

(III) early activities

After the anesthesia disappears, the upper and lower limb muscles can do some retraction and release actions, and the operator can get up and move in 6 hours. This can promote blood flow and prevent thrombosis; Promote intestinal segment activity and prevent intestinal adhesion.

(IV) pay attention to vaginal bleeding

Cesarean section has more uterine bleeding. Family members should check the amount of vaginal bleeding from time to time. If it exceeds the amount of menstruation, inform the doctor and take hemostatic measures in time.

(V) prevention of abdominal wound dehiscence

When coughing, nausea and vomiting, press both sides of the wound to prevent suture breakage.

(VI) urinate in time

Indwelling catheter is usually removed after rehydration on the second day after operation, and urinate in time 3 ~ 4 hours after removal. When you can’t get out of bed, you should get up and go to the toilet; If not, inform the doctor until you can urinate smoothly.

(VII) pay attention to body temperature

Low fever may occur after discontinuation of antibiotics, which is often an early manifestation of reproductive tract inflammation. If it exceeds 37.4 ℃, it is not suitable to be discharged forcibly; For those discharged without low fever, it is best to measure their temperature once every afternoon within one week after returning home, so as to detect low fever as soon as possible and deal with it in time.

(VIII) beware of late postpartum hemorrhage

Cesarean section patients with uterine wounds are more likely to cause fatal bleeding, and late postpartum bleeding is also more common. If lochia increases significantly after returning home, such as menstruation, they should seek medical treatment in time, especially those living in rural areas with inconvenient transportation. It is best to go directly to the original delivery hospital for diagnosis and treatment, because it has a better understanding of the situation of pregnant women and is convenient to deal with.

(IX) take contraceptive measures in time

Sexual intercourse generally starts 42 days after delivery and 3 days after lochia is completely clean. Condom should be used in the initial stage, and go to the original operation hospital for ring release 3 months after delivery. Abortion is particularly dangerous.

(x) pay attention to vaginal wound pain

When there is endometriosis in the uterus at the wound site, the menstrual wound continues to swell and ache, which is more serious in January than in January, and hard lumps can appear later. In case of such symptoms, go to the original hospital in time.
