I have a second degree tear from when the midwife had to turn bub's shoulders during delivery. I have no idea how many stiches I have but I tore through to my bum. Just wondering how long it took other ladies to recover from a 2nd degree tear? How long until you weren't in pain moving/sitting? I had a midcall midwife check them 4 days after delivery and she said they were looking good, but she was an insensitive cow and I elected not to have her back. I'm pretty sore, taking neurofen and panadol which isn't doing much. Its been 9 days, just wondering whether this is normal?
