I gave birth about 6 weeks ago. I go for my checkup in a couple days, can't wait!
I've been having a burning sensation on my left side since labor, where I had a small tear during labor, and didn't think much of it. I just thought it was burning because the urine burned the tear when it hit. Well, it's been 6 weeks and still burns, so I looked down there with a mirror. I saw the tear mostly healed, but a small reddish, fleshy bump growing out of it. That's the sore part that burns when urine hits it I figured out.
Could this been an infection growing from the wound? Is it a normal part of healing?? Cyst? I have all these thoughts. I know I see the doc soon, but I can't stop thinking about it!
