Quoting Dixie its a girl:" Ok, I would like to know everyone's personal experience with the c-section? On Jan.3 i have to have a ... [snip!] ... i ever went through. I also wanna know how it felt with the spinal block? Please just post your personal experience thank u all"
i had a c-section august 24th. i was induced 10 days early for medical reasons, my sons HR kept dropping when i had contractions and i wasnt dilating so it was an emergency c-section. not sure what a spinal block is, i had already had my epi and they did it like that, the top right of my stomach (kind of my rib area) didnt numb completly so thaat kinda hurt but i didnt want to get any pain meds till DS was out, after that they gave me every bit of pain meds they could and i slept through getting stitched up and took a nap in the recovery room, DS had to go straight up to NICU because he was breathing heavily and was GBS positive. Healing from it was a smurf! it hurt to move. But the more you move around the faster you start to feel better. And when they come in to give you pain meds TAKE THEM lol. They would ask me on a scale of 1-10 what my pain was and id just be like oh its a 1 and then ten minutes later when id actually try to move around i would be dieing,
Also, take the stool softners and ask for gas medicine! When you get home buy some gas-x, that was the most horrible pain i had felt was having gas, you dont think about the fact that you were cut open and air get trapped and gives you gas.
