Many people’s knowledge of caesarean section is limited to the fact that it is an operation to help expectant mothers deliver. With the progress of science and technology, the improvement of anesthesia technology, the knife edge of this operation is smaller and smaller, and the pain is less and less. Now people’s living standards have improved, and the cost of surgery has rarely been taken into account. Moreover, many people will not have a second child, so more and more people began to ask for caesarean section. Consider the following details before choosing a C-section.

10 details of caesarean section

1. Choose the time of caesarean section

According to the number of weeks of pregnancy and other obstetric complications, the doctor will choose the operation time

2. What should you do before the operation

One day before the caesarean section, don’t eat any more after supper. Do not drink water 6-8 hours before the operation to avoid vomiting during anesthesia and aspiration. Before operation, pay attention to keep healthy. It is better not to suffer from fever diseases such as upper respiratory tract infection.

3. Anesthesia mode

At present, epidural anesthesia is often used in our country. Anesthesiologists usually insert a epidural tube between the third and fourth segments of the lumbar spine. The drug was slowly released through the tube, and the mother to be remained awake, but the pain disappeared. The advantages of this anesthesia method are very obvious, and the anesthesia tube can be reserved after the operation, with the postoperative pain pump, so that the drug can be released slowly, can be reserved for 24 hours after the operation, and effectively alleviate the postoperative pain.

In addition, there are several other anesthesia methods, such as lumbar anesthesia, general anesthesia, combined anesthesia (epidural anesthesia + lumbar anesthesia), which can also be selected according to the actual situation of the mother to be and the hospital.

In case of emergency, the doctor will give local anesthesia, shorten the waiting time and ensure the rapid delivery of the fetus. The choice of anesthesia must be approved by patients and their families and signed for approval.

4. What will you encounter during the operation

The lower abdomen will be washed and sterilized, inserted into a catheter, and then anesthetized. The doctor will make a horizontal incision in the prolapse of the lower abdominal wall. The second incision will be on the wall of the uterus. After the amniotic membrane is opened, the child can be taken out. Sometimes doctors use their hands to press the bottom of your uterus in order to help the child deliver.

5. How big the wound will be

During the operation, the doctor will determine the length of the blade according to the size of the fetus, generally about 13cm. From the point of view of beauty, horizontal incision is basically used now. If the mother to be does not belong to scar constitution, she will recover well after operation, which is basically invisible.

6. How long can I eat after the operation

Each person’s situation is different. Generally, the exhaust after operation is used as a sign of normal eating. The fast is 6 hours, and the slow is 1-2 days. Because the effect of surgical anesthesia will weaken the peristalsis of intestinal smooth muscle, exhaust means that the digestive function of intestinal tract has been restored. Postpartum because can not immediately under the ground activities, the new mother can turn over more in bed, this is conducive to exhaust as soon as possible.

After the operation, it’s better to eat some easy to digest things like custard and rice porridge at the beginning of eating, and then return to normal diet after the gastrointestinal function recovers completely.
