Message length 300 characters recommended

Bleeding was pretty heavy after my c-section. My incision scar did great and I was able to get the staples out a week later. I guess I assumed that since that healed up so well, the bleeding wouldn't have been so bad (the two aren't related, I'm just a rookie). It was heavy for a good 2 weeks then started to taper off and remained heavy-ish for another few weeks. The lightest flow lastesd for about the last 2 weeks. Take advantage of those giant pads that the hospital puts out for you
