Sorry more random CS questions
Expect a fair few of these from me in the next few weeks. Sorry, stupid questions keep copping into my head and I know so many of you have had ELCS .
so here are the two I have been pondering in bed this morning-
how much below your scar do you need to shave? My lady garden is currently about an inch below my old scar, is that enough or do I need more off? I don't like the bald look do don't want to whip it all off if I don't have to!
And this second one is probably really stupid so apologies. - they put a catheter in for the op for your wee and its in for a few hours after. I know this is because you can't move your legs to go for a wee, but is it also because part of the spinal stops the muscles working to hold it in and stop you peeing yourself? If this is the case what about pooing? ( sorry I know I'm probably being stupid and over thinking things). Does the spinal stop the muscles working that would let you keep your poo in? what's to stop you pooing yourself? Would you even know you needed to poo if everything is numb or would the first thing you knew about it be when you had s**t yourself?!!! Sorry I know its probably a stupid question ! ( and perhaps tmi while eating your breakfast!)
