I'm just sharing info here, not bashing anyone.
After 48hrs of labor (induced due to low amniotic fluid) I ended up having a c-section. No info was really given to me about it other than a stack of papers I had to quickly sign. I never did any research on it because I wasn't going to have one. I was going to be the woman that had a drug-free birth, then I was induced (didn't know any better). I still opted out of pain-meds, of course I ended with an epi after I was told I needed a c-section.
I recovered fully without any complications from that delivery, rebounded pretty quickly actually.
I felt pressured into a repeat c-section with my second pregnancy (the hospitals don't "allow" VBACs). During the delivery I was told that I had a lot of scar tissue that had caused my uterus to attach to my abdomen wall. I never knew that could even happen! Kind of freaked me out.
Recovery wasn't as easy as the first time. Almost 21mo later, I have constant pain and pulling sensations on my right side. I had no clue what could be causing it until I googled it, haha. Adhesions. Who knew! After reading about them, yup, that's what it is. I have asked my doc about it and the only response I've gotten is pretty much "sucks to be you". Surgery can temporarily help but with more surgery can cause more adhesions =(
My question is, anyone else suffering from this? I heard it's pretty common. If you are considering an elective c-section, I would think about this. A lot of times, this cannot be corrected and it's a pain that you'll have to deal with for the rest of your life =(
