I am 5 weeks postpartum and just had surgery today to remove the retained placenta in my uterus after birth. Was curious if any other c sectioners had this occur? Seems fairly rare since they have you open on the table at the time of the section - I would think they would be able to extract it all then??? My Dr is pretty vague on the whole thing....not sure if they are trying to avoid a lawsuit or what lol. Thanks in advance for any info or experiences!
