Characteristics of post cesarean section pain
Aim: The aim of this study was to analyze the characteristics of postoperative pain in patients undergoing cesarean delivery for elective orurgent reasons.Material and Method: This study is an observational descriptive cross-sectional analysis involving 78 patients who underwent cesareandelivery. Visual pain scale (VAS) scores of 78 patients were evaluated in the first 6 hours and the patients were asked about the characteristicdescriptions of the pain.Results: Mean VAS scores in the first 6 hours postoperatively were 5.56±1.31. Body localizations where the patients feel pain were 7.7% inthe incision site, 14.1% under the umbilicus, 23.1% in the whole abdominal region, 50% on the right side of the incision, 1.3% on the leftside of the incision and 3.8% on both sides of the incision. There was no statistically significant difference between the location of pain andthe number of cesarean sections (p>0.05). There was a statistically significant relationship between the postoperative mobilization hours andthe patients’ satisfaction scores (p<0.05).Conclusion: Treatment of the post-cesarean pain is very important for the recovery process of the mother and the development of the earlybond between the mother and the infant. If the post-cesarean delivery pain is identified, evaluated and its characteristics are determined,appropriate interventions can be made to reduce or eliminate the pain.
