1st bowel movement after d&c...severe pain?(mc mentioned)
I had my fist mc 3 days ago. I was sent for an emergency d&c. As of last night, the contractions and pain started subsiding to a tolerable level with the pain medicine. Then i had the urge to poop... so i did. And as much as i tried not to push .. and just let the business come out on its own, I started getting a very sharp ripping/stabbing pain which felt almost as strong as when i lost the baby. I took some more pain med and tried to lay down, but to no avail. And on top of the stabbing/ripping pain, I started to feel the contraction like cramps again, thankfully not as bad as before.
As of this morning, the stabbing pain is still there and the contractions, but a little better then last night. Is this normal for the first poop after the d&c?
I want to call my doctor but i dont want to harass him for every little thing, especially if its common and im just new to it. I can honestly say i dont feel normal. But is it normal not to feel normal? Im still very tired and a little anemic and dehydrated still from all the blood loss. Still cant get warm, but its getting a little better. Last night i only slept with 2 quilts rather then 3. No headaches this morning. But i cant help but feel this "impending doom" feel. Like im going to die.. i know im probably way off base, but i couldnt help but discuss what dh would do, and the steps to take if i were to suddenly pass. I dont know if its normal to feel like this either. I dont know whats normal or whats not.
