It was the hardest week of my life. The worst pain ever! And I home delivered my own child (Remy). I caught him, birthed my own placenta, cleaned up and got into bed! I have had two babies without drugs and I will tell you...childbirth is a piece of cake compared to the H-E-double hockey sticks I have been through.

I am so glad it is almost time to get the fishing line out of my tummy! I feel like a torture victim.

I don't know if I want another baby. I CAN'T have a section, ever! I can't imagine!

sorry to here you aren't well. I can tell you from experience that c's are not that bad. I had a corpus luteum cyst that was the size of a soccer ball removed when I was 21 weeks pg with my first. Then I had to have an emergency c-section with him at 39 weeks. Then with number 2 I had a c-section and a hernia repaired at the same time. Then with the last I had yet another c-section. They are doable. I personally think getting up and moving as soon as possible is key. I hope you feel better soon and I promise even if you had to have a c-section in the future the baby would be totally worth it.........

At least with a c/s you get a baby. With this you just get everything back in the right place. Whoop-dee-doo. I'm sorry your recovery has been hard.

Ditto. That is the point I was trying to make. You don't get anything out of this but with a c you do.

I'm sorry it was so bad! glad your feeling a little better. My c section was almost painless compared to removing my gallbladder. My gallbladder I wasn't myself for an extremely long time. I didn't even need pain meds for my c-section except when I over did it I'd feel it at night and there was a no jokes rule that killed my DH to fallow.

Yikes! I have a herniated belly button too (I even have to pop it back in from time to time ouch!) and after reading your account, I think I'll just deal with it!

I'm glad you are feeling better & on the mend. (((HUGS)))

Today is even better. The biggest issue is that darn plastic fishing line he has anchored in the skin above the incision and the normal stitching. I would have preferred he didn't play plastic surgeon and had left that part out. The incision part is fine and even pretty painless today, the plastic crap is bugging me so much! 3 more days until it is OUT of me!

Oh I am so sorry Chelita! Dan had abdominal hernia surgery and it really was very easy for him. I wonder what in the world that dr. did to you!!! I am glad you are finally on the mend.

I'm so sorry you went through so much pain.

About the c-sections, I've also had 3 and none of them were that bad. Actually I tend to think I'm the one who got off easy. The first one I had the full dose of morphine and felt nothing for about a day. I had a much lower dose with Daniel as the morphine sends me on a trip and I didn't want that. So his was painful but still doable. Far worse was my tooth abscess last year with the dead nerve. That was the double hockey sticks for sure.

Reading your blog makes me wonder if they didn't muck up in some way. Truly stomach surgery shouldn't hurt quite that badly.
