    Default Post Partum recovery issues

    Hi Ladies,
    Not sure if this is the right place to post this, apologies if not.
    My gorgeous wife gave birth 2wks ago and sustained significant damage below, they debated on whether to call it a 3rd or 4th degree tear, she also tore internally from forceps. Long story short, it doesn't look ok. Something is wrong. The GP seemed a bit stumped and we are unsure what specialising doctor to go see? Should we see a gyno because it's a vaginal issue? Or an obgyn because It's a childbirth issue? Has anybody been in this situation?
    Otherwise, we are in the Frankston area, if anyone knows a local doctor who can help?

    thanks in advance

    Thanks for replying so quickly.
    we went public and have a follow up with a colo rectal specialist to make sure there's no incontinence issues. Nobody said anything about a gyno follow up.
    shes on the phone now to nurse on call for advice..
    Honestly, were kinda frightened and confused and "lost in the system".

    Hi, so sorry your wife is going through this. Your wife can still be seen by the drs at your hospital so it was a good idea to call. They should get you in asap (which might mean this week sometime) to check everything out.
    My first delivery was with forceps, including an episiotomy, and I had a third deg tear. My recovery was awful after my stiches came apart, twice. I know how scary it can all be. However, I did heal, and well enough to have a great second delivery. I know your wife will too, it'll just take time.
    All the best
