Lying on one side is the most suitable position for women after caesarean section (C-section). However, within the first 6 hours after surgery, do not lay your head on pillow.

Vaginal birth has to be very careful, and caesarean section should be more careful, not only because of the large injury but also because the cesarean is not good for excreting and recovering uterus.

The rate of cesarean delivery in Vietnam, especially in big cities, is higher. Typically, women will be cut thread after about a week and then go home. But as long as the wound has not healed, you also have to abstain from unsuitable foods along scientific way, because the complications occurring not only lead to pain, fatigue, but also affect the baby.

Lie

Supine position makes you a lot of pain, so lie on one side, put pillow behind your back, and make a 20-30 degree angle with the bed. This position will minimize the impact on the wound, especially when moving the body. However, you should note that the less movement, the less you hurt.

Within the first 6 hours, your body is still affected by drug during surgery, so you should lie straight with no pillow to avoid headache. After this time, you should still lie on one side to have less pain.

Early light movement

Of course you need to rest after surgery but not too long because lochia can be stagnant in the uterus and cannot get out, which is very dangerous. So after one day, you should move your limbs then sit up, and get out of bed to walk. These movements also helps to promote blood circulation, wound healing, increase peristalsis, avoid the risk of intestinal adhesion and blood vessel occlusion.

However, within 2 months, the c-section should avoid strong movement to not affect the wound, because after birth, the body is still weak, especially the abdominal muscles which stretched a lot. Let your family help with housework, and do not do it by yourself if you want to be fine quickly. You also should not carry anything heavier than your baby's weight. Do not go up and down stairs too much and do not drive yourself because the handling of unexpected situations encountering on the road can affect to the incision.

Eat light foods

You are not allowed to eat within 6 hours after surgery because under the effect of the drugs used in surgery, your bowel is very low, intestinal tract contains a lot of gas, and stomach operation is weak. So food will be very difficult to digest, causing bloating, constipation, fatigue, long recovery.

After this period, you can eat soft, liquid food. Radish soup dish is good to release gas in the intestines, increase peristalsis. Do not use more sugar, flour or soy products because they cause flatulence. Just do not eat fish because it is not good for blood clotting after surgery and makes the wound recover slowly.

Constipation and bloating often persist after surgery 3-5 days due to the effects of anesthesia, so you should drink plenty of water to quickly eliminate them. Do not drink cold water.

Wound care

Please "behave" the wound as your doctor advises. Don’t apply anything on it and do not remove all the tape or try to compress too tightly, because all these things can cause infection. Take care of your health to avoid flu because then the resistance decreases and the risk of infection increases.

Call your doctor immediately if wound pains a lot even when not moving or looking pink, swollen. Body temperature should be measured regularly, if it is over 38 degrees C, it is very likely you have inflammation (wound cannot sign anything special, but in the womb can), so you need advice from doctor immediately.
