Objectives: Caesarean section is one of the most common gynecological surgeries of women. Traditionally, patients are banned by the surgeon from eating and drinking for 24 hours or until bowel sounds are reversed, or even until the discharge of gas, after caesarean section surgery. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of early oral feeding on post-caesarean pain in patients undergoing caesarean section.
Materials and Methods: This clinical trial study was conducted on 126 repeated caesarean women referring to hospital in Divandareh in west north of Iran in 2016 to 2017 . The samples were randomly divided in to groups of intervention (early feeding) and control (routine feeding). The severity of pain was recorded before and 6, 12, 18, and 24 hours after intervention. Data analysis was conducted using SPSS Version 21. Descriptive statistics and analytical statistics, including t test, Paired T test and repeated measures ANOVA were used. The p<0.05 was considered as statistically significant.
Results: The severity mean of pain in the intervention group was significantly lower than the control group at 6,12,18, and 24 hours after intervention (p<0.001).
Conclusion: Early feeding turned out to reduce the severity of post-caesarean pain.
