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 an 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 an 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 as well. Hopefully your next pregnancy will not be so complicated. ...Read more
Y can't 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
Depends.: Depending on the emergency (maternal vs. Fetal) stat cesareans can even be lethal. Despite increased risk for infection, fetal injury, hysterectomy and bleeding, stats are generally safe and have great outcomes. Cesarean section is the most commonly performed life-saving surgery in the us nowadays. So, if you or yours need one, rest assured that it is done for good reason and expect great outcome. ...Read more
Difficult: It's possible but realistically there is always local anesthesia available along with other meds which can be given quickly to help in an emergency. Truly emergent c-sections have been done with nothing (bad idea...), with IV meds (ketamine, versed, etc), or local injection (lidocaine, marcaine... Doesn't really work well either). If anesthesia isn't available (rare) it is possible but painful. ...Read more
No: After a csection, the best way to prevent dangerous blood clots is to get up and move. During the csection we use devices on the legs to reduce clots that can be continued until the mom is moving. Generally we want our patients out of bed by the following morning. ...Read more
Great question: It depends on the true nature of the emergency. If you already have an epidural in place that is working well it can often be used during an emergency. However, when time is of the essence, and the baby or mom are at risk, general anesthesia is the fastest way to get a distressed baby out and cared for. Please rely on the expertise of your obstetrician and anesthesiologist to make the best choice. ...Read more
