mommy_to_be_09 posted:
i had my son feb. 20th of this year.. and since about 4 days of having him, i started getting chills, abdominal pain, crotch pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, low grade fever, and back pain and the feeling of when i cough something moves in my crotch? along with normal bleeding at times, like right now i bleed like a normal period.. then at times it gets really heavy, and the color changes.. then that goes away, but comes back.... i dont know if this is normal.. but ive had it for almost 3 weeks now?? and its gotten worse.. i dont know if thats normal... or what could be wrong with me..

Have you been back to your OB-GYN to get these symptoms checked out? If not, you should. Gail
mommy_to_be_09 responded:
my ob's nurse said that it wasnt normal symptoms after having a baby. to get checked out by my fam. dr.. so i got ahold of my fam dr... and they said they cant take care of me, to go to the er.. bc it sounds like a retained placenta?? w/e that means..

it would mean that it didn't all come out and is causing infection. you should go to the ER
mommy_to_be_09 responded:
went to the er.. they said there was no retained placenta, my urine and blood came back normal.. and that there is no infection in anything.. but they didnt know why i had the chills, fever, pain in abdomen, crotch, back.. why i had the movement in my crotch, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea for almost 3 weeks now.. and that if it gets worse or wont go away in a couple of days to go back.. they dont know what is wrong with me.. and i dont either.. it scares the crap out of me... its not normal to have all that for so long... surely there is something wrong.. isnt there?...
