My incision was healing very slowly, but as of this week it's getting worse. I now have one large opening about 1.25 inches long and another tiny opening on the other side. OB put me on antibiotics and just keeps telling me to let it air out and use peroxide on it a couple times a day.
The problem is that my stomach hangs over it, keeping all moisture in and never giving it air. Yes, I could lay on my back all day and give it air, but I can't afford to take that kind of time off work (OB says I need 1-2 weeks of zero activity), and I'm chasing babies around the rest of the time. DS#1 is 2 yrs 4mo and DS#2 is 12 weeks.
So I googled incisions that won't heal, and OMG. There are a lot of scary stories out there...people who are still having trouble with their C/S incisions 5+ years later... Now I'm scared out of my effing mind.
I'm looking for every way possible to get time off work and make this thing heal, but I don't know how I'm going to feed my family DH also works, but does not make the money that I do and we've already cut back everywhere we can.
Does anyone have a SUCCESS story on this? Like - yea, my incision wasn't healed at 3 mo, but I took one week off to try and get it better and then it was all better!
I posted this in 12-24 because I thought I might find more "healed" people...
