So last week when I was bleeding I called my docs office and talked to nurse because my doc is on vacation until 21st and I see him on the 22nd. She said all was normal and bleeding was normal etc. so bleeding stopped Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I didn't do too much at all and Monday was fine all day. Well around 3 I got up to get a drink and felt gush again. It was bad that when I sat on toilet it would fill with blood. So I called the on call doc after this was two hours.. It slowed at end of 2 hrs but still bleeding pretty heavy. She sent me the er and they drew blood, did an internal and external u/s and checked me internally. Well I guess I have leftover placenta and blood in my uterus so it needs to expel. They talked of a D&C but doc decided to just do meds to make my uterus contract for 3 days and expel this stuff. It comes with severe cramping so I am back on Percocet. we didn't get home until after 12:30 am and now DH had to take today off because DD doesn't have daycare this week. I am nervous about the cramping and pain and hope it all just happens fast.
I am angry my doc is on vacation and I can't find comfort since this is very uncommon with a c sec like why it wasn't all cleared out. Also why when I called did nurse just say oh all is fine don't worry and didn't even have me call a doc. Just so frustrated and annoyed
I'm sorry you are having to deal with this! I hope that it resolves soon. How scary to start bleeding that heavily all of the sudden!
