Is this normal - episiotomy


Hi,

I had an episiotomy 16 weeks ago.

Not long afterwards I developed an infection and a heamatoma. Was treated with antibiotics.

Last week I noticed a large blood blister at the the bottom of the scar. It went on it's own but it was painful so I visited my GP. Saw my GP last week who told me the scar is healing well.

Anyway it's started to bleed again from the same spot.

I'm getting so fed up now and feel like it's never going to get better, the area that is bleeding feels lumpy under the skin.

Should I go back to the GP? Anyone else had this?

Hi

I went back to another GP yesterday who again told me it was healing fine.
But I can see a hole at the end of the scar that I presume the bleeding is coming from.

She told me to give it more time but I burst into tears! So she has referred me back to the hospital when I gave birth.
