I need some advice please!
I had my bub nearly 2 weeks ago and had 2nd/3rd degree tearing. All the internal stitches have healed great but the external ones between my vjj and bum came apart the day or 2 after birth. So I have a HUGE gaping hole which could not be restitched.
I'd like to know how many people have had it all re-cut and restitched a few weeks after birth.
I'm really worried about it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you!!!

I dodnt have a repair straight after bub...he was over a year old. Long story short, i needed a posteriour repair ,just google it, its the part your talking about.
My advice to you would be leave things for a while to heal themselves and one that has healed talk to a gyneocologist and book in for a repair.
If of course you are having trouble going to the toilet, talk to a gyne NOW!!!
BTW, the idea of a repair DOWN THERE really scared me, it was the best thing i ever did . (although im still healing)

Hi Jessca. Firstly - poor you! How awful. I have had a repair done but it wasn't cut and restitched. Basically the layers which should've been stitched up inside were protruding through the outer layer scar. I had laser surgery to repair as it was kind if just slicing off the scar tissue if that makes sense.
So my story is not the same as yours and hopefully some more BH people can tell you more. But I wanted to say that I was in pain and bleeding for a couple of months. Once I had the surgery I was almost instantly cured and pain free. I had no problems afterward. I did give birth nine years later and tore (first degree only - what a breeze!) along my old scar line which apparently is quite common.
My suggestion is stay in touch with your GP of OB. Make sure you tell them of any pain or bleeding which could be an infection. Good luck, I hope it is fixed for you soon. Hopefully you'll have a quick recovery and I'm sure it'll be way less traumatic than laboring, giving birth and tearing.

hi jessca, my story might not be the same but sounds very similar. i had to be cut and re stitched 1 week after DS was born. i thought everything was healing but when my midwife checked i was told i would need to be put under a general and have it re stitched. i spoke to the doc doing the procedure and he said i could leave it and it would most likely heal on its own but there was a high chance i would have problems down the track like decreased sensitivity and would almost definitely tear again next time. so i chose to have it repaired and 7 months on everything is great and it has healed up nicely
hope this helps.
