Needs some reassurance


just need some reassurance really. I gave birth 11 days ago and had to have an episiotomy. Still VERY sore. I had the midwife check out my stitches and she said it is slightly gaping (not infected) and will take longer to heal. 

Im just wondering if anyone else has been in this situation and how much longer did it take to heal? 

Im doing pelvic floor exercises religiously and bathing once a day with salt and a few drops of lavender oil as recommended by the hospital.

is it also normal to feel abit heavy in my clit area when walking or standing. Absolutely dreading my partner returning to work Monday, he's been a star helping me these past 2 weeks.
