I had my son almost 5 weeks ago by c-sec, we are going to the beach house with some of our family today. Do you think it would be OK if I went swimming? My scar is fully closed, but I was just wondering.. I just didn't want to get it infected.

I had a c section with my son and was so suprised that it wasn't nearly as bad as everyone made it out to be...maybe it was the percs;) I would ask your doctor...or just call the office and ask the nurse at the office, if she doesn't know she will find out for you. I'm sure it will be fine and may even help heal it, since it is salt water...but I would definitley ask a pro just to ease your mind and help you relax on your vacation. Have fun!!
