anyone had to have a 3rd degree tear re-repaired?
I had a third degree tear which was repaired in surgery a few hours after birth.
I have had a lot of pain, and DTD has been very infrequent, but even when we have, its been very very painful. I went to the GP a week or so ago who had a look (she knew it was bad when i flinched at the word 'speculum') and said the repair job was awful and it was no suprise i was in pain. She sent me away with some antibiotics and some moisturiser/lube and asked me to come back this week to see how I'm going and if not much better then she'd refer me to a gynae to see what they could do in terms of a re-repair (which is likely as still v sore).
Has anyone else been through this or has some words of encouragement that it won't be like this forever?? I feel really sad that its come to the fact that we have gained a baby at the expense of ever having a 'normal' sex life again
