  • I had it really bad after my last one. It was CS. It lasted a week. I came home from the hospital the same weight as I went in. I covered up at night and sweat it out. It took about 2 nights. Sorry. It sucks.

  • when you're hooked up to all the iv's they hydrate you...usually too much, so that's probably what it is, lovely extra water weight!
