My dr. just called and said he is going to put me on Lovenox injections. I was found to have a Protein S Deficiency. He said I'll start them in my 3rd trimester and continue them 6 weeks after baby is born.
I have a few things I am wondering about:
* I have researched a little...what is the deal with Lovenox and epidurals and breastfeeding?
* How many injections is common per day--I'll be meeting with dr. soon to discuss--just curious?
* How about risks? To baby and me? I've read there really aren't risks for baby and the risk is bleeding too much for mom.
* Is C-section or vaginal birth preferable? Or is there no difference?
Thanks in advance for any info. you might provide
