Buscopan for miscarriage pain relief?

Hello

Had the medical management of miscarriage on Wednesday (tablets). Wednesday was the most horrific day of my life, pain like I've never felt in my life (writhing around on the bed telling my partner I couldn't cope), violently sick and a severely upset stomach! If I'd have known that it was going to be that bad I would have picked the op instead!

On Thursday and Friday I was pretty much fine. But yesterday (Sat) (and today) the pain has come back. Not as bad as Wednesday (thank God), but still bad and won't shift with ibuprofen and paracetamol. I went to a walk in centre today as I needed stronger pain relief and have been given Buscopan. Has any one else been prescribed this? The leaflet says that it's used to relieve cramps in the stomach (seems to be aimed more at IBS than the womb). If it stops my womb from contracting - could this mean that my body won't get rid of everything and I might have to have an op as well? Completely confused about whether the doc has given me the right medicine?

Also the blood's gone quite watery now and smells a bit if I'm honest (sorry if TMI). I've been very hygienic. Has this happened to anyone else? Is it normal?

Just wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss and the pain you have suffered sad

I'm afraid I don't know much about the medical side but might be worth getting checked out to make sure it's not an infection. As your doc has prescribed those pain killers I think they will be fine, I had morphene and it didn't interfere with the contractions at all.

Hope you feel a bit better soon. Hugs xxx

Thanks. It's just because the medicine leaflet says Buscopan is used to relieve cramps and belongs to a group of medicines called 'antispasmodics.' That sounds like it stops the spasms to me and surely I need the spasms to make all of the 'product' come out! Just terrified that after going through all this I'll need the op anyway.

Also have co-dydramol which is a painkiller.

I guess I have to place my trust in the medical profession and hope for the best. Never taken so many tablets in my life and worried for my poor liver!
