I had an episiotomy delivering my son about 2 weeks ago. I'm still in a lot of pain.

For those of you who had an episiotomy, how long before the pain was gone? At 3 weeks did the pain still bring you to tears?

I am on a 4 hour rotation of Advil and then Tylenol, and I don't feel a hell of a lot better with either and I'm starting to worry about the effects on my body from taking these so long.

The pain is putting me in a depression and I'm finding it hard to want to do anything. Even finding the energy to move on the couch for a feeding is a painful tedious task.

Is this normal? Do I need stronger pain killers? Am I right near the point of feeling better?
