    Is it me or or the doctor?

    I gave birth to my son may 6th of this year, after i had delivered there was a probem with my placenta so the doctor that delivered my son had to go in with her hand to get the placenta out. (the pain was worse then giving birth to my son). So about 3 to 4 weeks after having my son, something wasnt feeling right in my stomache it kind of felt like i had what felt like a tumor (the only way i can describe the feeling). But when i went in for my postpartum check up they said everything was fine. Now 3 months later that buldge in my stomache is worse i can feel it with my hand and when pressure is put on it theres pain and it seems like it moves when you touch it with pressure. Now i have started my period im having lots of pain and alot of blood, every half and hour to hour im bleeding through tampons and pads. And having large blood clots around the size of a golf ball. With all this i have no appeitite, pain and still feeling a budge, very tired, and faintness. Ive had 2 other periods before this that were pretty normal. I just need to know if i should be worried. Sorry So long.

    Yes, definitly be worried. Bleeding through a pad/tampon in 30 min to an hour is not normal nor is passing golf ball sized clots. See your doctor ASAP or if you can't get in to see your doctor, go to the ER.
