I've had to have a second d & c when 10 days after the first I was bleeding heavily, passing large clots and labouring for 6 hours at a time up to 3 times each day just to do so. The relief when I woke in recovery was incredible.
The first one was due to having bilateral pneumonia and losing my little boy at 17 weeks. They wouldn't let me birth him as I had just left icu so they decided to remove him for me. Because of the pneumonia, I had to have it done with spinal anaesthetic - it was a very traumatic experience. I'm guessing they rushed it a bit due to me being awake.
I hope you can get some answers and relief soon. I'm sorry this little one was only able to stay a short while ...
