Little pain in incision of c-section, split open followed by light orangish and then dark red blood. Anything to worry ?

Hi my friend had a c section almost a year ago. About two weeks ago she said she felt a little pain in her incision. Today it split open about one fourth of an inch followed by light orangish blood and then dark red blood. Her doctor said she could come in tomarrow to avoid and E room visit. Is this a big deal? Can I give her any advice

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum. After one year of the cesarian section she has developed an opening of stitches means , it must be an abscess probably due to nonabsorbable catgut remained there by mistake.
I hope there wont be any problem , after cleaning the wound and removal of the unabsorbed suture and use of antibiotics will clear the problem.
Besides i advise you to follow some diet recommendations as avoid taking potato, pulses, and fish to minimise the pus formation and promote the healing.
Wishing for a quick recovery and thanks for calling.
