My SIL had a c-section last week, she stayed in the hospital a few days, then sent home. After 3 days of being in pain,not eating and no bm my brother takes her to the ER ( this was after repeatedly trying to get a hold of her doctor). So at the hospital they get a hold of her doctor and he shows up. I don't what he did but in the end he sent her home and told her to take some laxatives. Well 3 days later, after the same issues that i mentioned above she wakes up in the middle of the night screaming in horrible pain and tells my brother to call 911. At the hospital turns out she had a perforated intestine, her colon had ruptured, causing bacteria from the colon to enter her abdominal cavity. She had to have emergency surgery and they removed a foot of her large intestine. Last time i talked to my brother she was still in ICU, but stable. Turns out her doctor has two lawsuits on him right now.
