Oh my goodness, I can't imagine coughing after a C-section. I've never had one, but it's bad enough coughing while pregnant ... let alone after having major surgery. Oh, yikes. I hope you are doing ok now, besafe!
I called my doctor's office the day I posted my original message and asked specifically about any interactions Sudafed would have with an epidural, and the nurse assured me it was not a problem. She said they only don't give an epidural if your blood platelates (sp?) are low. I still try to not take it, but I think I've taken one dose everyday for the last 3 days.
I am due the 20th and I am hoping my little boy will cooperate and wait till I'm a little better. This is my first so I'd like to not have any unnecessary stuff to deal with like not being able to breathe ... Plus, I was thinking if I do have him while I'm sick, I don't want to get HIM sick right at the start. I would feel awful. But we'll see how it goes ... he's still hanging out - although all the peeing while I'm hacking made me think my water broke today. Aigh!!
I hope everyone feels better ... good luck with your deliveries!
