'Parang Kuryenteng Dumadaloy': Moms Share Effects Of CS Even After Incision Wound Heals
  • Giving birth in itself is a huge achievement. And just because some moms gave birth via C-section surgery doesn't mean they have it easier or better.

    Having a surgical scar in the belly is no joke — and we're not just talking about treating the incision wound. (Read how to care for your wound here and here.) Moms who deliver via CS live with the effects of having gone through surgery for a long time, if not a lifetime.

    What CS moms feel post-delivery, after their incision heals

    One mom from the Smart Parenting Village gave a shoutout to moms who have stitches, giving an example of what kinds of feels CS moms get post-delivery. Other moms chimed it, giving us a peek into life post-CS. 

    It still hurts every time you cough, sneeze, or even laugh!

    "Naubo lang ako, sumakit na ung tahi ko!! Hello stitch, 2 years old na anak ko." Mommy Crystal

    "Hindi naman sa ubo, minsan nga bahing lang eh, kumikirot talaga momsh tapos makati pa. Eighteen months old na si LO."Mommy Antonette

    "Yes! Ako nga natawa lang eh. Sobrang sakit, ayoko na tuloy tumawa." Mommy Badeth

    "Our nurse helped me by saying that I can press on my tummy a pillow whenever I cough. It helped a bit but very, very painful pa din." Mommy Maru Katz

    You will feel it ache a little when you put any weight on it.

    "'Di ko pinapadantayan 'yung part ng tahi kasi masakit. Ingat na ingat ako kapag nakahiga na kami at ang likot ni LO at baka matalunan, Diyos ko po!" Mommy Jin


    "Masakit pa rin 'yung tahi ko lalo na 'pag nadadaganan ng baby ko at makirot minsan. Kaya iniiwas ko 'yung tiyan ko, baka bumuka. Eight months old na si LO." Mommy Situs

    In extreme weather, cold or hot, the stitches will itch or ache. 

    Turning 3 years old na ang daughter ko, humahapdi pa rin ang tahi ko lalo na kapag super lamig. Keloid pa siya so minsan parang anytime mapupunit." Mommy Agatha 

    "Nakakaramdam lang ako ng konting kirot sa tahi ko kapag sobrang lamig. Five years old na twins ko." Mommy Lhynn

    "Makati lang if super mainit." Mommy Marianne

    Fatigue can trigger your pain in your incision area.

    "Ako mag-aapat na taon na na-CS pero may time pa rin na makirot 'pag sobra pagod ko." Mommy Cristina 

    "Minsan 'pag malamig or kapag pagod sa gawaing bahay sumasakit din tahi ko." Mommy Gracie

    Even your back and hips can feel sore.

    "'Yung likod ko 'pag malamig, nakirot, biglang nasakit, saglit lang nawawala din. Three years old na anak ko." Mommy Abby

    "Four months na si LO pero 'yung balakang ko, mabilis mangalay tapos kapag natagalan sa posisyon na may pressure sa may balakang, masakit siya." Mommy Aron

    It feels like your scar has a life of its own.

    "Minsan para siyang pulso. Tumitibok yung pakiramdam nung area na sumasakit. Narramdaman ko na yan simula nung 1st CS ko till now naka 2nd CS na ako. Pinapahinga ko lang hanggang sa magsubside. Mommy Che

    The fear that the incision will pull apart is always there.
