I am desperate for help regarding my horrible episiotomy experience. I gave birth July 7, 2008 and received a third degree tear and episiotomy. I was in extreme pain until my six week appt but thought that must be normal after a delivery. Well, my doctor said I was not healing well at all and had tons of scar tissue growing out of the incision. I had to have an episiotomy revision at 7 weeks postpardom. All was well after this for 2 weeks. Then my incision began to open up again. It was only a small part near the back so my doctor put 3 stitches to close it up and told me to take it easy for a few days, which I did. Those stitches all pulled loose after 3 days but I was told it would be fine and should heal on it's own. Well, now the whole incision is completely open and raw. It is unbelievably painful and I can't get back to the doctor for 2 more days. My doctor has never seen or heard of this before and thinks I need to see a specialist. I have had multiple blood tests which all came back normal. I am 26 years old and in good health. What could be causing my body not to heal? I just want to get better so I can take care of my daughter. Please help.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
