In brief: Long labor

The top two issues one can have after a c-section are bleeding and infection.
Infection can occur in multiple areas...Lungs bladder and wound being the most common. Prolonged ruture of membanes and labor prior to the c section have been associated with increased risk of infection, as has obesity.

In brief: Which ones?

Which complications? That's liek asking whats the top reason for having car trouble? Risk factors in general are obesity, repeat c/s, poor surgical skill, poor nutrition and hygiene.
Peole don't understand what additional challenges obesity presents for the surgical team and also for healing. As a urogyn one of the few times i'm called in to help is with 300 pound plus patients due to challenge.
