3rd degree tear, bump "down there"
I hope I'm posting this in the right place...anyway I gave birth a week ago to my daughter, and I had a 3rd degree tear my doc says. I know it's going to be sore, swollen, etc, and the pain has lessoned a little over the past week, but I finally had the courage to look down there with a mirror, and I noticed at the very top of the tear (closest to the labia) there is a little bump, and that is what is causing me all this pain, and it it weren't for that little thing, I would be able to sit down more comfortably. Does anyone know what this is? It started off kind of looking like a little pimple, but sometimes it swells and causes a lot of pain. I don't know whether to bring this up to my doctor before my 6 week appt. I am hoping it is just normal swelling, but it looks kind of gross! Sorry if tmi
