Incision Care

10/30/2008 02:00:00 PM Posted In Edit This
Congratulation Kak Eju and husband on your newborn! She's so beautiful and weighs a healthy 3.21kg! Kak Eju had to undergo caesarean so I would like to share some tips on caring for incision:-

1. Keep the wound dry. It’s okay to shower several days after surgery (preferred to bathing), however ensure that the wound is carefully and thoroughly dried.
2. Watch for signs of infections e.g. puss formation, intense pain and redness, fever.
3. Avoid activities that are likely put pressure on incision. However, walking is encouraged as they help restore energy levels and digestive functions.
4. Drink plenty of fluid and nutritious food to help build tissue and heal wounds
