When I gave birth to my daughter i had a catheder like many do, and i ended up with a bladder infection, they sent me home with antibiotics but I didnt take them like I should've been because things were so crazy with a newborn. Well it progressively started to get worse like when I used the bathroom it was very bad burning and stinging pain, but no urgency to pee, well Sunday i called my doctor because I started feeling like i had the flu and i had a fever and I just felt awful, they gave me cipro 250mg for 3 days and I was told if my fever continues after 24hrs to come into the ER because it could be a kidney infection, well I waited until I finished the meds and the day after i finished i had a fever of 101 so I called my OB and he told me to come in, so they took my temp and it was 102.3 and they took two forms of urine, I peed in the cup and they placed a catheder in me to get urine, both came back completely normal, no bladder infection..so they ordered a CT scan to look at my kidneys, they found that I had swollen tissue and veins. Long story short i have SPT it is a large blood clot in a large vein in my pelvis that leads to my heart and lungs. They arent sure if it is from my c section but they havent found any other cause yet so right now its pointing to my c section. Ive been in the hospital for 4 days, they are giving me lovonox in my stomach and coumadin to thin my blood. My INR level is at a 1.1 and they want it at a 2 so I think ill be in here another night, after the hospital i have to see a hemotologist every week for however long.

Gosh. I haven't heard of that before so I don't know what it means really but I hope they are getting you taken care of! Is your baby able to stay in the room with you?

I am sorry to hear that. My brothers fiance had the same thing when she had my niece in January and she was born naturally.. Bad part is she is on blood thinners and will be she has some sort of disease.. it was scary bc they thought they were going to loose her on the delivery table after my niece was born.. Hope it gets better soon and you can go home and spend time with that adorable bundle of joy..
