I recently underwent a non emergency c-section for the birth of my second son. I was fighting for a chance to have a vbac in a hostile vbac institution. They all but left me for dead in the hospital. I sustained a lacerated bladder which was cut in half. I lost half of my blood volume waiting for over an hour for the on call urologist to get to the OR on a weekend.Ive been left incontinent and disablingly weak from DR. induced complications. In addition I was put under general anesthesia before they even cut my bladder because I had too much to say so they silenced me.I have no birth memory. Im overwhelmed with anger. They sent me home after two weeks with a hemoglobin of 6.0. I couldnt take care of my baby. I had to hire help. I couldnt get out of bed for a long time. was too weak to even get to the bathroom alone. I was so anemic from the blood loss it affected my memory and recall. Thank God my beautiful boy is perfect and unharmed. I have been to 5 lawyers no one will pursue it. The doctors say Im incontinent because Im postpartum!! A year later? I dont think so.
