    Default Post C-section haematoma?

    Just wondering if anyone has experienced this and how long it took to go away? I'm 11 days postpartum and have a haematoma above the wound measuring about 15cm across my stomach. It's rock hard and does not seem to be going anywhere anytime soon

    I developed on 4 days pp c-sec. It was gone by 4 wks at my check up. Resting, ice compression and pain meds if you need them. If your really concerned I'd see your OB sooner or your normal gp

    I've had a large haematoma in my leg that took 6 months to go.

    Wow! May I ask what caused it? Was there anything that made it go or was it just time?

    I fell on a bus. It was just time to help it go. The outside bruising faded, but the lump under the skin was what took such a long time to go

    Your welcome Hun. Just make sure you look after yourself remember you've just had major abdominal surgery and need to take it easy so please don't go doing anything to strenuous. Ask if you need help doing things around the house and don't be afraid to. I'm really lucky to have my folks close by they took my DS on a holiday for 10 days a few days later and do all the school drop offs and pick ups for me. xo
