on healing correctly

Posted on | Friday, October 15, 2010 | 1 Comment

so, it's safe to say i haven't had the easiest time in this little think called motherhood and i'm pretty sure it sucks to know that i didn't quite heal properly either.

during labor i had to get stitches for tearing (2nd degree tears) and everything seemed ok until my 6week check-up when the doctor told me i still had a stitch. WHAT the WHAT? yeah i still had a stitch but she told me it should dissolve within two weeks. GREAT!

not great... i started feeling some pulling as if the stitch was still there anytime i would sit or squat. so i went in to have a look or see if they could cut the stitch out. NOPE, it wasn't a stitch it was my own "hoo-ha" that had not healed correctly. NO BUENO

i had to go in for a procedure to have them fix it... basically it was an episiotomy re-do. i have to deal with 3 more weeks of healing like i did right after having the baby. this is not fun but i guess when i weighed out my options i figured this was the better route. either this or no sex. can you see my dilemma here?

let's hope that i'm good to go before the end of this year because i just can't seem to handle much more. maybe i'm crazy but despite all that has happened so far i'm totally willing to go through it again to have such an amazing baby in my life.
