I had a c-section on Tuesday after laboring for 24 hours and "failing to progress" past 9.5 cm. I was given a large amount of pain medication (including lidocaine and an epidural) during my unsuccessful labor and was also maxed out on Pitocin before they did the surgery in the end. I am now on oxycodone and motrin for the pain along with tylenol as needed. I noticed this morning (Sunday) that my ankles and feet are very swollen and they are even sore from the swelling...is this a common side effect from any of the medications i am taking or was given during labor? I also only gained 20lbs during the pregnancy but I got on the scale today and I havent lost any weight at all!! My son was 8lbs.3oz. Shouldn't I be weighing less now!? Any help/opinions would be appreciated.
