I had c-section on nov 30. It was an emergency c-section as the baby was coming his hand first. They had to work fast , so there was a lot of pulling and pushing. Apart of a lot of pain I have developed annoying swellings. Since day 2 post-op my feet, legs, thighs, arms, and almost all my body is swollen.
They told me that it happened due to all the IV fluids I had to receive during the c-section, before and after it; and that it would take couple of weeks to get rid of them. I am not able to fit in any of my pregnancy clothes (!) and have to settle for PJs and sweat pants.
I wanted to ask if anyone had similar experience and when would I start feeling better. Can I do anything to speed up the process?
