After a long, difficult birth I ended up with an episiotomy and vacuum delivery. I swear I've also damaged my coccyx. I gave birth 11 days ago and still can't fathom sitting upright. Just today I sneezed twice without bracing my peri, and now my epi site is slightly bleeding. The skin at the centre has split slightly, though my midwife says it's looking good still. I've had a lot of trouble breastfeeding as my milk doesn't flow very quickly laying on my side, but I couldn't possible feed any other way. Consequently I also express and bottle feed to fill my little man up after he has had 10 or 15 mins/side. Just wondering if others with epis have taken so long to recover?? How long until you could sit again?
