I had C-section 7 weeks ago and I am facing the following problems:

> My vaginal bleeding stopped around 3 weeks after the C-sec and then suddenly from around 6 week it started again. The blood is red like a fresh cut, has smell and am having kind of cramping pain. I had transvaginal exam, and a small spot was found in uterus. Is it possible that I have a blood clot? I am breastfeeding (though I use pumping machine and breastfeed directly (15-20 min per day) and doctor said it may be possible becos of breastfeeding which cause hormonal imbalance causing this bleedng!! Anyone faced this before.

> I still have a pain (not very intense) in my lower right side abdomen. I feel it when I lie down in bed change sides, or get up from sitting position etc. Is this normal for pain to last that long or should i be
concerned about this..

> I have dizziness and nausea. I feel hungry but cannot eat,have vomiting tendency. My appetite was ok for 2 weeks after the operation, but recently i am facing this problem. My Gyno said to consult with internal medicine doctor. I have also developed infection in my bladder, with e-coli bacteria. I am not sure if it is due to the infection or any digestive disorder etc?
Anyone faced this issues plese let me know.

Thanks a lot.

This sounds like an infection, phone the post natal ward today and ask if you can get someone to look at you. Fresh blood doesn't smell. If you are dizzy then the chances are your Hb (haemoglobin) levels are low because of the bleeding.

You do really need to phone them up. I'm bumping incase anyone else has some advice for you.

pain , bleeding , dizziness and nausea could all be related to post op infection

did you have antibiotics for the bladder infection?

breastfeeding should not cause problems with the bleeding, if there are retained parts of placenta , that itself can interfere with breastfeeding..

i would speak to someone today and get seen as you must feel very poorly
