    C section incision not healing


    It's been close to 3 weeks post partum now but my c section wound is not healing. QMH has referred me to the GOPC close to my home. I go there every alternate day for dressing.
    I'm getting worried and want to consult a private doctor for the same.
    Please recommend a good obstetrician on Hk island.

    Hi prag,
    Sorry to hear that. I go to Dr Edwin Tam from OT&P, he is nice and patient.

    Hi Prag,
    Yes, it is taking a bit long.
    Is this your first second or third caesarean?
    Repeat C-sections can pose such a risk on wound healing as the scaring diminishes blood supply bringing in reparative goods to the wound leading to risk of wound infection and poor healing. Certainly there are other factors such as diet, hygiene, and the reason surrounding the caesarean section such as failed labour induction after membrane rupture, or fetal distress, etc.
    I am aware of a fantastic silicone based dressing applied as an ointment or gel called: STRATAMED manufactured by a Swiss company.
    Make sure any infection or dead tissue in the wound is removed by dressing cleansing and debridement (which should have been done already by and O and G department); then: You need to get hold of the product I mentioned, apply it twice a day to the whole wound and you'll start to see results within 1-2 weeks.

    However, if they cannot sell directly to you, then it is best you visit a private practioner....can be a gynaecologist or dermatologist.
