Never had one so cannot help. Googled your question though,
Your incision will take up to six weeks to heal completely. During this time, there are precautions you will need to take:
- Avoid lifting anything that weighs more than your new baby.
- Avoid or limit trips up and down stairs.
- Do not drive for two weeks, or until your doctor gives permission.
- Wear comfortable clothing.
During this time, it is important to rest as much as possible. Focus on your well-being and that of your baby. The housework and the laundry will still be there when you're feeling better, so don't worry about them! Put your family and friends to use as you continue to heal, and gradually increase your physical tasks.
