I had my D&C last Wednesday. I was really surprised at how smooth the whole thing was. I was in and out quickly. It wasn't nearly as scary as I imagined. The gave me a script for Loritabs and Motrin, but said I might not need them. They told me to expect period like cramps. My bleeding was pretty light. I was fine for the first two days and even went to a rehearsal dinner for a friend on Thursday night.
Friday AM I woke up at 3 AM to intense contractions and pain. I took a second Loritab and another dose of the Motrin at the advice of the on call OB. I was in so much pain. More pain than I have ever felt before. I was doubled over, couldn't walk, I had to breath through them like I was in labor. My husband and Mom insisted I go to the hospital. They took me in and it took 3 doses of Morphine before the pain stopped. The did a CT scan to make sure I didn't have a perferation in my uterus. The also tested for infection.
In the end everything checked out well. The said I had some inflammation and a lot of fluid in my uterus. They thought the contraction were my body trying to get rid of all of it. My bleeding did pick up a lot throughout the next day and I passed a couple of clots that were golfball sized the next morning.
I don't even know the point of my post. I have my post D&C follow up today. Maybe it's silly, but I am just so worried they are going to think I'm crazy. It seems everyone says it was an easy procedure with little to no pain, even my own Mom. I know I have been sad and stressed but I don't think you can stress yourself into that much pain. I guess I just feel like people think I'm looking for sympathy or making it up. Is there anyone who can relate?
