I had my first baby almost 8 weeks ago. I wanted a natural birth but ended up in a csection due to my water breaking and no dilation or effacement within 48 hours. It wasn't an emergency one. But when they decided to do it I was so scared because I never had surgery in my life. I was crying, sobbing, shaking all the way into the o.r. And was out of my mind frightened. I had my first panic attack in the recovery room and the next day my o.b. came in and said I have anxiety they noticed it last night so get treatment...everything was fine but three weeks ago I started always thinking I won't be here to see my baby grow up, i will die soon..I get panic attacks thinking I'm having a heart attack. If I get a pain in my head I think it is a brain tumor or aneurysm exploding. Idk why but I fear for no reason. I guess I'm a hypochondriac. My dr suggested it was PTSD from the c section..
Any advice ladies? Any ne experience these feelings before? Thanks
