4 years ago I had an abdominal myomectomy to remove a grapefruit sized fibroid tumor which left my uterus compromised. I was unable to get pregnant due to the surgery and ended up doing 4 rounds of IVF.
I have taken a lot of hormones and medication throughout my quest to get pregnant and am concerned about adding to this chemical load for my baby and me. I am unable to have a vaginal birth this time due to the surgery and a significant risk of uterine rupture.
Can anyone give me any suggestions for which medications I can avoid during csection?
Any direction or advice is much appreciated!
In an otherwise complication free pregnancy there aren't a lot of meds involved in a c section itself....
You have the epidural or spinal... Kinda necessary and less risky than a general
tell the staff you don't want any anti-anxiety or amnesiac drugs administered during the surgery
i was administered some iv antibiotics, one dose, after the surgery was completed, and not told about it. However, I don't have a problem with that as my gut had just been exposed to the world. Then there's postoperative pain meds... Which you can take or not as your comfort suggests.
