I tore giving birth to my first, but not your usual run-of-the-mill tearing. I tore in 3 different directions with one tear being almost 3 inches long. Lucky me, the sutures all pulled out at some point within the first few days and when DD was a week old, I was back in the hospital having reconstructive surgery. I swear they used re-bar. I then had to spend a month on very strict bedrest – not allowed to sit up in bed – with a catheter for the first 2 weeks. So, I TOTALLY feel your pain!! I have never been so uncomfortable in all my life. Hope you’re back on your feet again soon!
