I can't believe how much 2 little holes hurt!
Those who have had a c/s or multiple c/s's - you are much stronger than I!!
At least w/childbirth there's a pleasant goal to reach...a reward for the pain. Yesterday showed me I'm really a wuss, lol.
Thank you again to everyone who responded
I am still sad - I feel like I'm in mourning over the loss of the that part of my life
, but I know it is right. Each of my last pregnancies has had more complications than the last and I don't want to risk anything for myself or a baby.
I had the tubal banding done. It hurt like crazy after. It took about 6 hrs for the tube endings to die off, and it was excruciating. They decided to give me a 2nd dose of percocet (the 3rd pain killer - they gave me Fentanyl and something else as I woke up) when I couldn't stop moving trying to find anyway to ease the pain. Here's the kicker..I went home to my heating pad and took some Aleve & was able to sleep finally!!
Apparently, in addition to the type of surgery I had, I have a separation in my ab muscles from the pregnancy so they said to expect more pain from that as well as referred pain in my back and shoulders from the air in my abdomen.
My milk supply did drop a lot
but we're almost back to normal now as Jonathan does NOT like a bottle still
. (he waited 5 hrs yesterday before finally taking one from daddy - and it was milk. No formula still - an ongoing feat for me
And now I'm bleeding again
- come to find out that's normal (?? no one told me that ) however it may have triggered my period ?? - I was looking forward to seeing if EBFing would hold it off for me since I've never done it this long.
All sad/aggravating parts aside. I'm functioning-slowly. Jonathan is well, also. He fought off the cold or whatever he had and is back to normal. I'm very thankful for that especially since it seems every time we take our children to ANY medical establishment, they get sick!
Enough rambling from me ( pain meds don't help that, haha).
