WAs just tondering if anyone has had this?
After DS (now 4 mths) the placenta wouldnt come away, In the end i had to get whisked off to surgery and have it removed (for those that dont know ...its not "surgically" removed, its done manually, yes the dr reaches up inside and pulls it out!) I had alot of bleeding and the dr wasnt sure if she got it all as it was complete (as in in one piece) when she removed it, she also told me (all this mind you while i was still pretty off my face) that she thought there might be an infection as she notice a smell, Also she said that my uterus wouldnt contract during surgery and she had to give me needles everywhere including up my "back passage"
WAs jsut wondering if anyone else had been thru this?

I did too. I don't know many details though except that the placenta was stuck after they gave me the injection that's supposed to help you push it out after the baby is delivered. I had alot of bleeding too. I'd like to know if it's likely to happen next time or if it's one of those things they can't predict.
