I'm 10 days PP. My bleeding has been significantly low. I'm very pleased with my lack of bleeding. However, my right hip has always had alot of pain. It was my biggest concern even the day after my c section. Its slowed down alot. But, I've been really sick with food poisoning yesterday and a little today. We needed to go to the grocery store, and on the way home my hip started hurting again. When my hip really hurts, I bleed crazy amounts in very little time. My incision is also looking kind of weird. It looks like the skin has only gone back together every inch and a half and the rest of the spots are like open sort of. Its not red & it doesnt hurt, but it doesn't look right. I need to call and make an appointment with my OB before my PP check up. But, I was just wondering if its happened to anyone else?
I'm sorry to hear you are having trouble with your recovery. I had significantly less bleeding after my tubal than I did all the others, as well. I've never had the hip pain you are speaking of. The way you are describing your incision.... it does sound a little odd. It's good that you don't have any pain or redness there, but I definately think it's a good idea to give your doc a call.
Thanks ladies! I'm hoping I can get squeezed in sooner, rather than later! I'm wondering if they just bruised my hip when they were in there doing their thing? But it wouldn't explain the blood flow.
@ Heather, I'm always sooo surprised to see you here lol. I am in love with that pic of Aaliyah <3 Ed took it with my phone while we were in recovery!!! Her face has thinned out alot since then, but this one is my absolute favorite pic of her so far! Did you see the other pics on FB?
I didnt have any issues like you describe. My hips do hurt on occasion(esp. around that time of the month)but it seems to be something that took place during each pregnancy. Like it got a little worse each time I was pregnant. I figure its arthritis but its never affected my flow.
Hope the dr can give you some answers.
