My name is Kristy and I just had my baby boy on Friday. :) I'm actually still in the hospital but my nurse can't answer my question and told me to ask the dr... well, I never even saw him/her today. I'm suppose to go home tomorrow. Brady is doing great.. I thought my first c-section went okay. I actually felt great for a while. Last night I decided to skip my pills because I needed to get some sleep and didn't want to be woken up. Well, I guess I paid for it this morning because it took me sooo long to get up. I was in tears. It hurts so much to get up. My belly doesn't hurt when i'm laying down. Doesn't even really hurt when i'm sitting... what feels like someone is taking a knife to me is when I put pressure on my left leg. It hurts my left side (where my scar is) soooo bad. This has now happened all day today and it brings me to tears. The bathroom is only like 10 steps away and even that is a workout. It's getting worse and worse every day. I'm taking 3 oxy's, some tylenol AND ibuprofen and nothing has touched it.
Is this normal? Why is it only my left side? My leg doesn't even hurt at all which is what the nurse doesn't understand. It's just the pressure from that leg that goes right to my incistion (sp?). Like I said.. it feels like a knife cutting me. :(
