I have a c-section scheduled for late May, and I'm very nervous! Dreading another surgery, but I've had some sphincter issues so I know it is the right decision. Ugh.
Anyway! I was wondering how long until you all were able to get up and get to the restroom on your own after a c-section? I know they put in a catheter during the procedure, but I'm a little worried about anal leakage. And because I will be numb, I'm worried that the acidic pouch output will eat away at my skin while I'm trying to recover from the c-section!
How did going to the bathroom after a c-section go for everyone? How soon were you able to go on your own, and did you have any leakage?
While we are at it, is there anything particularly special I should pack or have with me when we go in to the hospital?
How is the recovery from a c-section after all these pouch surgeries, anyway?
