I had a vacuum assisted delivery 8 days ago.
Unfortunately, my little girl twisted around as they pulled her from me, and this caused me to tear.
I have a 2nd degree tear, which was very close to being 3rd degree.
I have had stitches and 8 days on, I am in the same amount of pain as I was the first day.
How long until the pain begins to subside?
I've had panadol but it doesn't touch the pain, and I don't want to take anything stronger.
I've had the stitches checked and they are all fine...no infection or anything.
How long were you in pain after your stitches?
