Sorry if this isn't the right place to post, but I wasn't sure. If it isn't, I can rename and erase the thread. I just couldn't think of another board or area that would be able to provide responses. I was previously a participant on this board after my CP back in December 2016 and you ladies were helpful, now I find myself in a different situation.
***TW***I am currently 8 weeks postpartum*** and I found out today that I have partially retained placenta that is causing non-stop bleeding. Because it poses a risk of infection or hemorrhage, my OB recommended a D&C.
I have never had any kind of surgery or been put under before. I know it's a short procedure, but I have a lot of anxiety about it. The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of issues from dealing with an abscess in my breast that had to be surgically removed but while awake and with local anesthetic (making breastfeeding difficult on the right side), multiple rounds of antibiotics and now dealing with this. I don't know if it's having the procedure or just everything piling up that is making me anxious.
Given the unfortunate reality of why many of you ladies are on this board, I figured there might be some who had a D&C. Would you be able to share your experiences? Was it painful after for recovery? Does it impact future fertility?
