Can I go to chiropractor even though I had a c-section only 2 weeks ago?

Can I go to chiropractor even though I had a c-section only 2 weeks ago?

Yes but why?: Chiropractors offer a deep massage based upon outmoded theories of disease causation. This is not curative. If you had a problem prior to the pregnancy which is still persistent, and I assume you went to a chiro before, this is a good time to have it evaluated properly by an orthopedic doctor who can actually make a diagnosis and recommend a course of treatment. ...Read more

VBAC after 2 C/S's: Caesarean operations weaken the uterine wall and labor can rupture the wall, leading to very serious effects on mother and infant. If you contemplate a "VBAC", your OB should discuss the risks with you. Careful monitoring, and a planned induction at 37 weeks may be possible, but remember, a healthy baby is more important than the way he/she may enter the world. ...Read more

My wife had a C-section two days ago. How long should she stay with dressing over wound? Midwife removed it today, is that OK?

Yes: Studies show that there is no increase in the risk of infection as long as the dressing is left on for at least 24 hours. Our mothers were right! Wounds heal faster if you let the air get to them! ...Read more

Inflammation: Most of the time if there is no redness or drainage, a small hard lump may be inflammation or scarring from the fascial closure. This is usually felt more easily on the edges where the sutures are knotted. Ask your doc if the area becomes larger, red, hot, or painful. ...Read more

I just had a c section about two weeks ago. I'm having really bad cramps, and a sharp pain on my right side. Could it be appendicitis?

I just had a c section about two weeks ago. I'm having really bad cramps, and a sharp pain on my right side. Could it be appendicitis?

Typically not: Usually appendicitis presents with right sided pain, loss of appetite and some times fever. It's most likely associated with increasing your daily activities, healing from your surgery, your uterus getting smaller or suture tugging. Contact your physician and try to get an appointment for early next week. Take meds as prescribed. If you get fever, chills, persistent vomiting worse pain- SEE DOC! ...Read more

What to do if I had a C-section two weeks ago and I haven't bled at all today. Did it stop?

I recently just had my baby two weeks ago which I had a C-section and my legs is like cramping up on me and also my back has been in so much pain.?

Get checked: Get checked. It is common to have leg cramps and back pain both during and after pregnancy and/or c-section. But when it persists after two weeks though it may reflect simple contractions from breast feeding, or diminished potassium or magnesium, it also can reflect an infection, blood clot, mass or other concern that can usually easily be ruled out by a quick doctor's visit. ...Read more

I had a c-section two months ago and finally got my first period but the bleeding is very heavy with bad cramps and vomiting, is this normal?

Probably: Because your uterine lining has been growing for longer than usual u are likely to have more of it to bleed off and produce more prostaglandins as a result. These are chemicals which cause cramping, nausea,diarrhea, and can cause fever. Try NSAIDs like ibuprofen or naproxyn and if these don't help or this continues get in to see your doctor. This shouldn't be so severe it keeps u from enjoying the baby ...Read more

Yes : Yes you could be pregnant without question. You need to take a pregnancy test. If it is negative then you likely have a hormonal imbalance from recent childbirth. If you are not pregnant please discuss birth control options with your doctor. You should give your uterus time to heal after the surgery before another pregnancy.
All the best. ...Read more

My period ended yesterday and tonight I'm having lower abdominal pain. It hurts my whole body? I had a C-section two years ago. Help???

Ibuprofen: I would take some ibuprofen and rest; maybe use a hot water bottle / heating pad on your abdomen. If the pain subsides after an hour or two then there is probably nothing to worry about. If you have a fever, abnormal vaginal discharge or worsening pain then you will need to go to the ER or urgent care tonight. ...Read more

How risky is it with getting an abortion after two months c-section post-partum?

How risky is it with getting an abortion after two months c-section post-partum?

This is a real...: This is a real predicament. It's not safe to get pregnant so soon after delivery since you haven't had enough time to recover from the last pregnancy. But, if your uterus hasn't completely recovered, the risk of complications from an abortion is higher too. The safest approach is a medically induced abortion which doesn't require putting any instruments in your uterus. Talk to your OBGYN. Best wishes! ...Read more

Irregular periods: Irregular periods are very common. If you normally have regular periods and then suddenly have one that is early or late this usually gets better on its own with cycles returning to normal over the next few months. If you are not wanting to be pregnant you should discuss birth control which will also help with cycle control. ...Read more

Is it possible for my wife to have a vbac after two c-sections she had previously. The last c- section she had in 2004.?

Possible/advisable??: If your wife has never had a vaginal delivery before, is overweight or obese and has no desire for further childbearing, my strong advice would be to have a pre-labor repeat c-section and bilateral tubal ligation. Trial of labor after more than one cesarean section has not been studied adequately due to physicians' reluctance to place undue risks on maternal-fetal life/health. Talk to your ob! ...Read more
