    Default Could it be an infection?

    Hi ladies,

    I am 15 weeks pp after emergency csection number two... My recovery was a little rough, was stapled and turned out to be allergic to stainless steel but at around 6 wks pp I was feeling fine.

    The past few days I have been feeling sharp pain in one side of my incision. I looked tonight and that side is now swollen, but not red.

    I guess I just panic and will probably stress until I can see my doc, but has this happened to anyone!? I'm sort of freaking out ;(

    Sounds nasty, definitely call health line, you don't want to get blood poisoning
