Anyone experience passage of large pieces of tissue after "d and c"?
I found out at 12 weeks through ultrasound that my baby's heart stopped beating....sadly this was most likely due to my recent diagnosis of cetamegalovirus (cmv). I had a "d and c" on tuesday, and today, saturday, I was in such excruciating pain that I had to go to the emergency room. The doctor there did a pelvic exam and ultrasound and said it was because I had large amounts of blood and blood clots. I had been expelling these clots all day, some bigger than others. But, a few hours after I returned home from the ER, I passed a large piece of fleshy tissue...not the baby thank god....but a large "muscley" looking piece...that was clearly not a blood clot. It was about the size of the palm of my hand. It had a different texture, color, appearance, everything. Not to be gross, but it looked like a piece of steak or something! I didn't save it to be examined because it happened at a restaurant, and I ran to the bathroom. I called the nurse on call, and she said that it was "impossible" for a piece of tissue that large to be missed during a "d and c" and it was most likely a large blood clot...I KNOW that this is not the case. It was radically different looking. In my personal opinion, I think the tissue looked like placenta, and it was left in me after the "d and c" and it was prohibiting the blood from escaping for these 4 days....and that is why the blood pooled and clotted and collected. Just wondered if anyone else had any experience with this before! Thanks!
