Sorry to hear this happened to you but sadly I know exactly what you're going through. After I gave birth to my now 22 month old I experienced a baseball size heamatoma that was like you said more painfull than birth! Everyone there was shocked to see it, but once my OB saw it he said it was normal swelling. He let me go home but within a week I couldn't take it anymore and decided to call and see if he could see me. The nurse said it hadn't been enough time that passed and that it could be normal swelling, so I had to wait till my 40 days passed bye. They were the longest too, I couldn't sleep, sit, walk but worst of all I couldn't enjoy my NB like all mother should. It was time for my check up, once the OB saw the heamatoma he couldn't believe I actually spend so much time with it, he said he knew the pain was unbearable. I had to get it drained, which hurt sooo bad. But strangely till this day it still hurts at times and I don't know why. My OB says its just my imagination and to forget about something thats not there anymore. But he doesn't understand me, does anyone know why this mighy still hurt and get swollen?
