Vertical scar line on belly after emergency csection. Why did they do that?

Vertical scar line on belly after emergency csection. Why did they do that?

Emergency!: If it was an emergency c-section then all thoughts and procedures are done to emergently deliver the baby via an incision in the abdomen. Cosmetic outcome is not a concern in those situations. Vertical incisions are the quickest way to gain access to the abdomen as opposed to the horizontal incision. Similar incisions are used for trauma cases (gunshot wound ). Glad you and the baby are ok! ...Read more

I've been trying to get pregnant for months and it just not happening, I already have a 6 year old, who I had a emergency c - section with. Why?

See your OB: There is a chance that your trouble getting pregnant is related to the previous C-section. It also may be completely unrelated. Either way, your OB should be able to help you figure out what to do next if you're trying but not able to get pregnant again. There are many possibilities so start with your OB. ...Read more

I took a home test on 12-10-13.I had a emergency c-section 8 months ago, i haven't had a normal cycle since.My last cycle was11-25-13.Am i prengnant?

Breastfeeding: You had a baby 8 months ago, are you still breastfeeding? This will definitely throw off your menstrual cycle. If not breastfeeding, then there could be other reasons for lack of period. Did you have massive blood loss at cesarean? This can lead to problems with pituitary. Sounds like if you're not breastfeeding, you should get checked by doctor to rule out anything serious. ...Read more

My first child was delivered by emergency c-section because i had a complete abruption caused by toxemia that was not treated. I was given high doses?

Abruption: Abruption and toxemia commonly are seen together because of the high blood pressures seen in toxemia. I'm not sure what you were given high doses of but Pitocin (oxytocin) in very high doses can contribute to abruption also. Hopefully your next pregnancy will not be so complicated. ...Read more

Y cant you eat before a c-section? Y do people vomit during c-section?Can you have maxalon for a c-section?What if you eat before emergency c-section?

Too dangerous: The risk of vomiting is high during csection. if a woman vomits, she risks aspiration which can be fatal. Women vomit for lots of reasons, anesthetic causes a drop in blood pressure, the uterus is being manipulated and there is abdominal pressure as well as other reasons. Maxalon is often given prophylactically before csection. If it's an emergency it's an emergency and we just accept the risk. ...Read more
