C section recovery question

(12 Posts)

I had a C Section almost 4 months ago. Recovered fine, about from a nasty infection which cleared up after 2 weeks of antibiotics. But now, since yesterday, I'm in agony! It's like the pain I had in the beginning, internal. When I cough it is extremely painful, when I sit down, it hurts (internally), almost feels like there's a lead weight inside my uterus. My almost 2 year old son jumped on me today and I actually screamed in pain!!
Has anyone experienced this or have any advice?
Thanks in advance!

No. I haven't had that. I've had two. I would go back to the consultant that over saw the op (after mentioning to my GP).

You need to see a dr!! Not normal ime, get it checked out.

Go and see your doctor or even phone the maternity ward for advice. you need to look after yourself so that you're fit to look after your little ones

This is what I thought! I was close to calling an ambulance this morning it was so bad. It feels very internal, not the scar.
I'll call gp in the morning and get an appointment. When I touch my tummy it feels like there's some guarding.
Last thing I need right now. I should have gone today really!
Thanks for the replies

If you feel generally unwell, have a temp or any other symptoms go to a&e tonight.

I rang 111 and they are sending an ambulance (despite me saying I can get to a&e myself) after hearing all my symptoms. Getting dizzier and fainter... And very anxious

How are you OP?? Hope you're ok x

Worked for 111 and that is correct - they really are not taking any chances. If I remember correctly that with abdominal pain and "yes" to question about recent abdominal surgery it will trigger an ambulance dispatch.
I wonder what it ended with and is OP okay?

Hope you're ok OP - update us

Sorry for not updating sooner! The paramedic came and was really lovely and thorough. He said he couldn't feel any guarding and suggested I see my gp. He didn't think I needed to be seen urgently (my hospital currently being dubbed Britain's worst) although he said he would take me if I wanted. I was reassured after seeing him so said I'd stay at home. He said if it gets worse, ring 999 and they'd take me in. I saw my gp and they think it could be inflammatory pelvic disease. I had bloods taken today. I'm feeling in less pain now and luckily my lovely dh has been doing everything so I can rest!

Thanks for all your kind words grin
