Re: I need help for those who have had a D&C

Yes, this is normal. I had cramping and bleeding for 2 1/2 weeks after my d&C. I passed some tissue along the way too. The whole area was sore and painful for about a week to a week and a half after. It is surgery!
You'll be o.k. take this time to relax, grieve, and eat a lot of ice cream.
Hope this helps.

one more thing...Just make sure you don't have a fever. If you do, it's an infection, go to the emergency room right away.

Re: I need help for those who have had a D&C

I am running a low grade fever and I am chilled to the bone, but I also have a sore throat so I don't know if I am not coming down with the flu on top of it all. Thanks for your help.

Re: I need help for those who have had a D&C

My throat was sore because they had to intobate (spelling??) me twice since I threw up during the operation. I only needed pain medication for my throat, but they had to up the meds since I was so miserable. Just having a sore throat wouldn't worry me, but having fever definitely would. If you can't get to your doctor and still have fever and pain, go to an urgent care or er. Even if there is nothing wrong, you might rest better knowing for sure.

Re: I need help for those who have had a D&C

If it hurts to urinate like it's a bladder infection then no it's not normal. You could have a bladder infection. They can give you something for it. I had pain when I would go pee but it was only three times. I called my dr. and told her it hurt to urinate and that I passed a weird looking clot. She told me that they cleaned out my bladder and gave me a round of antibiotics and I should be okay. I was fine by the 4th time in the bathroom. I would call your dr again. That is ridiculous that they haven't called you back yet. Mine calls me the same day I leave a message. You will be sore still. I can't stand it. I take my Motrin that she prescribed for me everyday.

Re: I need help for those who have had a D&C

I actually have UTI, and was told that it is common with that surgery.. who knew. But I am glad that is all it is and nothing else. My throat hurts worse, but I am on antibiotics now so hopefully it will all clear up.. On top of losing my baby, and having a UTI, today is my birthday.. I know this one won't go down as a fondly memorable one.

Re: I need help for those who have had a D&C

Wow, I only bleed for a week or little longer. And yes, I passed a lot of big chunks that hurt so bad. But defintely demand some attention or simply call another hospital and tell them the situation
