Hi everyone, Had my LO 6 days ago. Had a bad induction, needed episiotomy and vacuum assisted delivery. I got a 4th degree tear! I'm just not sure what to expect and wanted any words of wisdom/comfort from anyone who tore badly.... I'm in a bit of pain down there but not terrible; I'm more afraid of bursting some stitches or having long term issues than anything else. I had my first bowel movement and that was really scary but it didn't hurt a s badly as I thought. It's more like I felt it pulling which freaked me out. I just hate that I tore so badly!!
