i delivered my DS by c-section on 30 nov. shortly after that i developed swellings all over my body and shortness of breath. i was told it all should go away by my 6 weeks pp appt. it did not. they ordered an echocardiogram and cardio appt. well, it seems i have developed maternal cardiomyopathy?!... third spacing of fluids after c-section?...i was put on diuretics, small dose as i breastfeed. it does not seem to work at all.
has anyone experienced this before? how long will the swellings stay? is there anything else i could do? maybe non-traditional? since traditional medicine does not seem to have the solution?
