Mine is a natural delivery with quite a big tear coz i did not know how to push.
Doc say take 2 weeks to fully recover.
The 1st time the nurse make me get up to pee, i almost fainted!
First few days was hell, had to sit on float and super scared to pee coz painful.
Did not even dare to fart coz worry the wound will tear and almost cried when i pass motion. Feel pain even when i took painkiller...
But i listen to my mum advise to lie dwn more and did that for most hours and wound really get better a week later!
No longer need to to do 3-point turn when i get up or lie on my platform bed.
2 weeks later, i was able to squat and bathe my baby!
So i guess lying down really help!
