My top tips for c-section recovery:
- granny undies are your friend, go buy some. Dh and I laughed like hyenas when we bought mine.
- a big button down nightie or 2 is also very helpful.
-get up a soon as they let you and walk around, don't slouch or it will tighten your scar.
-put a pad over your cut
-have a supply of juices like pear and prune juice and have 1 or 2 glasses a day, you have to poo and you may as well make it as easy as possible.
-keep on to of pain relief, so much harder to get it under control otherwise.
I didn't have morphine in my spinal, they actually injected extra doses of local anaesthetic into the uterus whilst my spinal was still active. My pain relief was panadol and ibuprofen alternated 2 hourly, and endone as needed. I think I only had 4 doses of endone all up.
Enjoy it, is still the birth of your baby and it's a beautiful thing.
