After D&C

Had D&C yesterday Dr. Said everything went well. When I woke up I noticed my throat and chest hurt (couldn't take a big breath) told nurses but they didn't seemed concerned at all. So I figured that must be normal? I know there was a tube in my throat to keep airway open. Anyway... Today I have a very dull pain on and off in my chest. It's not constant and it's not uncomfortable or anything just noticeable I guess. I was wondering if anyone else had something similar after their D&C? Is it just from the anesthesia? 

Re: After D&C

  • I did have anesthesia so I am not sure. I think mine was just sedation and the only pain I had was cramping. 
  • @Jmccabe12210 I'm so sorry for your loss. If you had a breathing tube, it would make sense that your throat hurts. You probably still should call your Dr just in case.

    I had a sore throat for a few days after my D&C Last month...I also had a stiff neck that started up the day after too...my guess is it was from the way the anesthesiologist turned my neck. Both issues went away after a few days.

  • @Jmccabe12210 So sorry for your loss. After my D&C, I also had a sore throat, stiff neck in general, and it hurt a little to breathe. This was due to the breathing tube inserted during surgery, along with the position they had me in. The discomfort went away over the course of a few days. If you have any concerns at all though, don't hesitate to call your doctor.

  • So sorry for your loss.  I'm thinking you had a breathing tube.  Call and make sure but seems like your symptoms are due to that.

  • I went to ER for chest pain and no blood clot. Dr thought that maybe chest tube irritated me. Anyways she pushed down on my abdomen so hard!! :( I was hardly in any pain in my abdomen and now I'm so soar. I can't win this week. She gave me a Z pack and prednisone for my chest but it's honesty not bothering me as much as my abdomen. Not sure what to do...
