I had a C-Section performed on the 6th of May after pushing in labor for roughly 4 hours. Couldn't get the big guy out.
My problem is now that it is 6 days later, I'm still on Percocets until about 2 more days and still in sheer and utter pain. If I can't take something when the pain wears off, I can't move around let alone hold my child in my arms to feed. I'm having low grade fevers, my swelling is so bad, I can't lift my legs to put my own clothes or underwear on. Hubby has been helping with that. My blood pressure is high as well as my resting heart rate.
They told me at the hospital to walk and drink lots of liquids. I didn't walk much during pregnancy, but drinking fluids has been high on my list with 3 to 4 pints of water, a 64 fl oz of cranberry juice and 3 to 4 cups of milk. I'm clearly not dehydrated, but swelling is not being helped.
Can someone help me or tell me what I can do to help myself?
