The OB has told me a week after I gave birth that it takes at least two months before the wounds from the episiotomy would close up and it will fully heal, internally, after at least a year.
What’s episiotomy? According to the little pre-natal booklet I got from my doctor, Episiotomy is incision made during childbirth to the perineum (if you’re that curious, research, I’m not willing to elaborate any further) to widen the vaginal opening for delivery. And medically, it’s a very precise cut. I had to undergo that, unfortunate for me, and I don’t think it’s small at all.
Seven months later, it’s been hurting as hell for me every once in a while. I’ve gone back to have it checked because I can no longer sit down properly without wincing for the last two days. They say that it might have been caused by the rigorous activities I’ve been undertaking lately and that I should be fine now. I’m suppose to take some medication to ease the pain in case it becomes unbearable again.
I have come to the conclusion that episiotomy is evil. Evil, I tell you! Evil! Oh why, why me?

I merged two posts, since I posted them on the same day….

I noticed something fancy about my stats…
I’m getting hits from the Google looking for Coconuter and Elbi Nights. The elbi nights lyrics I can manage coming from elbi myself, I listen to hemp republic during my reggae nights. I do miss elbi, Gimik, tambay, gala around, nature tripping, hell week, feb fair and all the fluster. Let’s reminisce some other time hmmm? 😉
Anyway, here’s the lyrics: Back to Music
But if you got directed here because you were looking for coconuter and is kind of confused how you got here, well let me explain…
Zinky mentioned about a guy called coconuter in my shoutbox a few days ago and she gave me the url. I am not very mindful of tv happenings so I didn’t know that this blogger appeared on TV this weekend I think. But in any case, he’s a cool blogger, he’s using one of the predefined templates in blogspot that is so simple that it’s genius. It’s not obstructive and you get to really focus on what’s important, ie the content, and from what I’ve seen he writes eloquently and I love his photo collections. So for those looking for him here’s the link to his blog: Coconuter: A Travelogue by a Philippine Nomad
