I would love some input about how long I need to limit physical work after a D and C. I am a farmer, so its really hard to step back from my work this time of year, we have hired some extra help but I would like to get back to work as soon as I can as long as it is safe for my healing. I had an emergency D and C on Monday after a severe bleed from retained membranes that followed a miscarriage at 13 weeks in early April. I felt like absolute hell the last two days because of the general anesthetic and blood loss but am starting to feel better today. I was planning on taking a week to rest, then slowly easing back to work. How does this sound? My extended family is making me feel like it was working that caused the bleeding, and that I would be an idiot to start working again. I took it really easy for at least 3 weeks after the miscarriage so I don't feel that is true. I want to give my body the time it needs to heal but not feel like a total invalid either. The only info I got from the hospital was 6 weeks of pelvic rest, so I would really appreciate hearing anyone's experiences. Thank you.
8 might be enough?
Or maybe 9 will be?
