Many new mothers have wounds after childbirth, such as perineal incisions, perineal tears, or cesarean section incisions. However, a new mother who has just given birth has weak physical resistance, and any slight difference may cause wound infections. Therefore, it is necessary to take good care of these wounds and avoid adding more trouble to the very busy postpartum period.
Tianling is about to have a baby. The baby is very big, but her pelvis is naturally a bit small. So, the doctor decided to have her undergo a cesarean section. Tianling felt a bit uneasy in her heart. Two years ago, my sister also underwent a cesarean section due to a small pelvis, but the wound has been affecting her recovery since delivery. For this reason, as the day approaches delivery, Ling feels more nervous and even sleepless.
My husband went with her to consult a doctor. The doctor said, don’t be so nervous, as long as you take good care of it, the wound will heal well and won’t affect your physical recovery. However, it is important to master the correct nursing knowledge.
Rehabilitation self-service prescription
Prescription 1. Pay attention to turning over more after surgery
Anesthetic drugs can inhibit intestinal peristalsis, causing varying degrees of intestinal bloating and abdominal distension. Therefore, it is advisable to do more rolling movements after childbirth to promote the early recovery of paralyzed intestinal muscle peristalsis function and facilitate the rapid discharge of gas from the intestine. 12 hours after surgery, soak in some senna leaf water to help reduce abdominal distension.
Prescription 2. Go urinate whenever you feel like urinating
In order to facilitate the operation, catheter should be placed before cesarean section. The effects of anesthesia disappear 24 to 48 hours after surgery, and the bladder muscles can resume urination function. At this time, the catheter can be pulled out. As long as you have a desire to urinate, you should try to urinate by yourself to reduce the retention time of the catheter, so as to avoid bacterial infection of the urinary tract caused by too long time.
