I have a question about the 6 week PP visit to the surgeon. The OB didn't seem to be too concerned with me coming in for it (he didn't even know why I was there at 2 weeks, and he was the one who insisted I make the appointment for that visit), and I've cancelled twice and now they have me coming in for my "6 week" visit August 17, and Eamon was born May 26.
Do I even need this visit? I do NOT plan on him giving me any kind of internal exam, unless one is done to check for some kind of post-surgical something. But if it's just the pap, etc, no thank you, do not want that man's hands near me again.
Is there anything else that was done at your visit? I have little bits of pain leftover, but they mainly happen when I'm tired. My hips are out of whack and painful, but I think that's from the long labor and rotten-feeling transition, not from surgery. And he can't do anything for it, that's for my chiro to take care of (plus, I have a refill on the ibuprofen and he gave me a second scrip for percocet, should I choose to fill it and take it, though both of those are doubtful that I'd do for baby's sake!). I drove today and it went fine, I have no interest in sex whatsoever, so who really cares about that?
The lochia stopped FINALLY at the middle of last week.
Is that worth going in to see him again? I know you guys aren't doctors, etc, but I'm asking for what happened at your 6 week checkup (or right around there), or if you went, and what I might miss out on, if I don't ever see the OB again.
Oh, and witchbaby
, I'm right there with ya. I know almost no one in person who really cared how their babies were born, and they all did it vaginally, though not naturally. I've been dreaming about giving birth for all my life, and I end up with a surgical birth. Unwanted, unneeded (at least for the reasons they gave), and really sucky.
: I know how you feel.
Thanks in advance!
