Just had Evacuation of Retained Products of Conception (ERPC) (similar to D& C) this morning for miscarriage and testing for molar. Constant pain on left hand side near where tubes are since. Does anyone who has experienced this know if it is normal?

Please help.

No idea, did they give you a number to ring if there were any problems? Maybe try NHS Direct?

OOOHH!!! Falopian tubes..i get it! DOH!!!
Possibly referred pain, ring NHS direct or the ward for advice.

Thanks Donbean and Serenity. Anyone else?

Rang ward already. They told me to just take my painkillers and if pain persists to see my GP. My GP's shut today. I've taken the painkillers but pain's quite intense at times.

I wonder if it's pain in the ovaries. Just wondered if any one else might have had the procedure and had similar pain or is this unusual?

I've had a D&C and I only remember getting period-like cramps, not sharp pains. If it's bad I really would ring NHS Direct, although they will probably just tell you to go to A&E.

Do get some medical advise

It's not fair to speculate on what could be wrong - that would only frighten could be fine, but please see someone

After my ERPC, it transpired the surgeon didn't remove it all. After 3 days of contractions I was readmitted & had the rest removed. Pain then settled down. Also, my sister had a ERPC then they found it had been a twin pregnancy, with one in the tube. I would definately go back to you GP when you can. Are you passing any clots or what looks like tissue?

How are you Chickenrice?

Is/was everything OK?

Thanks everyone

That pain seems to have gone. Similar to Connyflower's, I suppose. It was sharp though. I did feel it one more time again. However, I have had upper abdominal pain (pain between from my belly-button upwards, nausea and bloating. How long does the bleeding take to ease off? I don't if it is alright to ask but what colour should it be red , brown, etc? Thanks to everyone.

Glad you are feeling a bit better - I can't remember colours.....but I remember being shocked at them (iyswim)

Hope it sorts out soon
