One of the common Cesarean section complications is infection, which can develop at the surgical incision site itself. To reduce the risk of infection, your doctor will disinfect your skin before making the cut and make sure that all surgical instruments are sterilized. They also wear sterilized protective equipment (gown, mask, gloves, etc.) to protect you and themselves. Note that infection may also develop in the uterine lining and urinary tract.
After the surgery, the risk of infection is still present, particularly if you don’t keep the incision site clean.
4. Injury to the Bowel or Bladder
One of the possible Cesarean section complications is injury to the bowel or bladder. These injuries can happen during the surgery, but symptoms may manifest while you’re recovering.
If you develop problems with your bowels or bladder after a Cesarean section, tell your doctor right away, so that they can start treatment immediately. Sometimes, damage to these organs will require another surgery.
