-- Please help c-section stitches

Hey ladies.. I had a scheduled C on the 27th and I am absolutely terrified of having these stitches.. I weigh about 330 so I have an overhanging belly.. I've never had stitches and I'm so scared that these are going to rip or come undone.. I took a shower tonight and after taking the initial bandage off I noticed gauze in my belly crease where the stitches are and immediately started having a panic attack that if I moved that gauze it was going to rip my stitches. I started passing out (Thank god for the 3 nurses who came to my rescue) it was absolutely terrifying and I start panicking everything I move and they hurt or pull.. I really need advice.. I need help getting over this fear.. I just don't know how..
