I'm really noticing a trend in my friends and family that the hospital doesn't seem to take their pain following childbirth seriously.
Some of these women are in severe pain following tearing or forceps(it's the new trend here to reduce the c-section rate) and hardly able to walk but their still checking them out 24 hours later with a bottle of ibuprofen and a sitz tub if they're lucky.
I've had 2 c-sections and they always made sure that my pain was controlled without doping me out of my mind. If I couldn't walk they assisted me and encouraged taking my time to recover. Even after leaving the hospital my doctor was continuing to make sure that my pain was under control and that I was functional.
I know that everybody is different when it comes to pain but after watching my SIL sob every time she walked more then a few steps and hearing about many others having the same issue it seems to be a bit of a pattern around here.
If you were in pain did the hospital seem to take it seriously and try to relieve it,even if you turned it down?
