View Full Version : Cannot sit down
02-26-2008, 03:07 PM
I tore really badly at childbirth, and have been unable to sit down comfortably or quickly since. It's been a week and it's so hard to function and nurse comfortably.
If anyone has any suggestions, I'd appreciate them!

I had an episiotomy during childbirth. I must say that while I was in the hospital it was difficult to get up and sit down. I left the hospital in a wheelchair.
However, to help with the pains I was having I took the motrin that they gave me. I only took it for two days but it helped a lot. Another thing that REALLY helped was the SITZ BATH. The hospital should have given it to you. You fill the bag with warm water and put the "seat" on the toilet. It is almost like a spa. Try putting a little bit of salt in it so to prevent infection (if you've had an episiotomy). But I did still have a little bit of problem getting up and sitting down like you. Also when sitting, put an extra soft cushion under you.
