About 15 months ago, I remember reading something(s) about potential problems arising from exteriorizing the uterus during a c-section. I have absolutely no memory of what I read, just that it provoked such a reaction in me that I wrote down "definitely don't let them remove my uterus to stitch it up". Does anyone have any research/numbers/articles stating problems or reasons why one would not want their uterus exteriorized? I finally got a hold of my medical report this morning, and with it found out that mine was exteriorized for suturing. I'm in a very confused state because I know I really didn't want that to happen, but I have no clue why! I'm not coming up with anything in my searches, so thought I'd reach out here. Thanks!
