I had a normal delivery with tear. The doc has put vicryl stitches in the tear. It has been a week now, but I am not sure if it has healed. Any ideas how long does it take for stitches to heal. I am finding it difficult to sit and feed the baby at times due to slight pain in the stitches. However, doc has suggested that sitting, walking will not cause any harm to the stitches. I am giving water bath to the area 3/4 times in a day. Let me know if I need to take some more precautions for the stitches.
