Caesarean section postpartum 4 big pain points, after understanding decide whether caesarean section!
1、 Abdominal wound pain after cesarean section
Caesarean section, the first thought is to use a knife in the stomach cut a hole, and then take out the baby. It hurts to think of making such a long cut in my stomach. Although the baby did not feel pain, when anesthesia past, the pain of the wound followed.
@ angel of good luck: it’s the eighth day after cesarean section. It’s still painful. I don’t dare to walk straight. I don’t dare to speak loudly. It’s hard to pull the pain!
Expert: Caesarean section recovers more slowly than natural birth, the wound is also more painful, and the time of pain is longer. Caesarean section is not only a scar on the belly, but also a wound in the new mother’s womb. Improper nursing will cause more serious pain.
About two to three weeks after the scar formed on the incision, the scar began to proliferate. At this time, the skin became red, purple, hard and protruded. When the color of the wound turns dark brown, the scar will appear itching. New mommy should keep the scar clean and clean, wipe off the sweat in time, don’t scratch with hands, use clothes to rub the scar or scald with water to stop itching, so as not to aggravate the local irritation, promote the inflammatory reaction of connective tissue, and cause further itching.
2、 Pain of catheterization after cesarean section
Many pregnant mothers don’t know much about caesarean section. Maybe some don’t know. There is a very terrible thing in the process of caesarean section, that is, inserting a catheter. In fact, inserting a catheter is not only painful, but also embarrassing.
Expectant mother lotus leaf: Recently, I had a birth canal examination, and it was very painful. The doctor said that my birth canal was narrow, and my child weighed more than 8 kg, so I had to take cesarean section. But usually do gynecological examination I can’t stand the pain, don’t know what it’s like to insert catheter? Is it more painful than gynecological examination? Can’t you plug it in?
Expert: before cesarean section, the catheter is usually inserted from the urethral orifice. The urethral orifice is above the vaginal orifice. Many expectant mothers feel pain when inserting the catheter. They feel swelling at first, and then they feel a little pain. After giving birth to the baby, the catheter still needs to be kept for 24 hours, so the new mother needs to rest in bed, and be very careful when turning over, otherwise it will need to be re inserted if it is pulled down accidentally.
Generally, within 24 hours after the operation, the medical staff will pull out the catheter and encourage the new mummy to get out of bed and urinate by herself. But if the new mother still can’t defecate herself, the doctor may insert the catheter again. It must be noted that as long as there is a sense of urination after extubation, efforts should be made to self solve, otherwise retaining the catheter is easy to cause urinary tract bacterial infection, causing new pain.
3、 Pressing uterus pain after cesarean section
After giving birth to the baby from the operating table, the new mummies will be carried to the hospital bed. The doctor and nurse will come to press your stomach before you feel relieved. Can you stand the pain?
Mom to be: it’s said that every few hours after cesarean section, the nurse will press your uterus to eliminate congestion. But I’ve heard friends around me say that the pain of pressing is unbearable and indescribable… I’m so scared. Can I not let the nurse press it?
Expert: the reason why doctors and nurses constantly press the uterus after cesarean section is that they should massage the uterus and confirm that the uterine contraction is good at the same time. When the medical staff run to press the uterus every other period of time, in addition to the pain caused by direct contact with the wound, pressing the fundus of the uterus makes the uterus bulge, and pulling the abdominal wall incision will also produce obvious pain. It’s absolutely impossible to say that it doesn’t hurt. In this part, a lot of mothers who have caesarean section will still have a lingering fear when they think about it afterwards! At this time, I regret that I didn’t insist on natural labor.
4、 Uterine contraction pain after cesarean section
New mommy grass: I thought only natural labor will have uterine contraction pain, but who knows I have caesarean section for six days, every day from time to time uterine contraction pain is severe. There are ten or twenty times a day, about a minute each time. How many days will this last!
Expert: most of the new mothers will have uterine contraction pain after delivery, which is called “postpartum pain”. The principle of postpartum pain is the same as that of labor, which is caused by the intermittent contraction of the uterus. The purpose of postpartum uterine contraction is to help the uterus stop bleeding, and the residual blood clot in the uterus is discharged, so as to promote the recovery of the uterus, which has its positive significance.
Generally, after cesarean section, the doctor will help massage the uterus. At this time, the pain is often unbearable due to uterine contraction pain, which is a normal phenomenon. Generally, there is no need for special treatment. After 3-4 days, the pain will disappear by itself. If the new mummy feels more severe pain, it can use hot compress in the small abdomen, or take some proprietary Chinese medicine, such as Chanfukang granules, motherwort granules, etc. It should be pointed out that painkillers have little effect on postpartum uterine contraction pain.
In addition, it is not suitable for new mummy to lie on her back after laparotomy because the anesthetic effect disappears and the new Mummy will feel pain in the wound. The supine position is the most sensitive to uterine contraction pain. Therefore, it is necessary to take the lateral position to make the body and bed form a 20-30 degree angle, and pad the quilt or blanket behind the back to reduce the vibration and traction pain of the incision when the body moves.
If you meet the conditions of natural birth, look at the four major pain points after cesarean section, I hope expectant mothers can think more carefully. Of course, everyone’s sensitivity and tolerance to pain are different. As long as they are determined, no matter how painful they are, every mother is a great woman. Come on, mothers who are about to give birth!
