  • I wish I could help. After I had my youngest via c-section (oldest dd was vag. birth) I had my tubes tied. So I had the "old-fashioned" tubal. I was sore from the section already, so I could not discern pain from the c-section from pain from the tubal. Good luck!

  • I had my tubes tied after having a c-section 3yrs ago. But the original plan was to have my tubes tied after a vag birth. My doctor told me after the baby is born they give you some time to bond with the baby 30min to and hour and then they take you to the operating room to do the tubal.

  • I had mine done that way over 4 years ago. Doc said how/when would depend on what time baby was born - well, he came at 10pm, and since it's a small hospital there wasn't a surgeon on to do it then since it wasn't an emergency ;). I had an epidural, so they left it in (turned off) so they wouldn't have to do it again for surgery the next day. They took me in, gassed me so I was out, numbed me through the epidural, did it through my belly button, and took the epidural out before putting me in recovery. (I struggle with coming out from under anesthesia, so I had a rough time for about an hour afterwards - but that's just me). Anyway, the first time I needed to get out of bed I learned something no one thought to tell me - I thought my guts were all going to spill out - not a whole lot of pain, about the same amount as after a normal vaginal delivery, but just a weird feeling. con't

  • I had to hold a pillow over my stomach for a couple of days, but by the time I was dismissed & went home I just had to put my hand over it when I was up - that only lasted a couple of days too. But still, pain-wise, really not much more than normal after birth. Recovery wasn't any different, other than having to change the dressing over my incision - mine was glued shut so I couldn't get it wet for over a week, just had to tape a small peice of non-stick gauze over it.

    Anyway, I hope this helps a bit, I'll check back if you see this and have any more questions, since I'm the only one so far who actually answered your question ;). GL hun.

  • I have debilitating carpal tunnel and ive been really sick my whole pregnancy theres something wrong with my stomach and they cant figure out what it is. I need some tests done to find out what is wrong with my stomach and i cant do that with the baby plus i have a heart condition called SVT my heart races and i cant breath to well llland i guess thats not good for the baby too. Just a bunch of problems thats why im having my tubes tied . The next pregnancy might kill me , this one almost did.
