After my c-section, I kept getting "gas cramps" & ran a 104 fever & had the shivers. My OB still released me. I went to the ER the next day where I was seen by a new OB. He performed emergency surgery on me. I had a hemotoma in my stomach & my c-section was severely infected. He said it was the worse he had seen. I stayed in the hospital for an additional 3.5 weeks. My baby was not allowed in & I could not breast feed due to the strong anti-biotics I was on. I was also on a wound vac. I went home with an IV line in my arm & the wound vac. I spent the next 4 months recovering. To this day, part of me feels distant from my baby and I feel I suffer the trauma. I think about the pain I was in everyday. I want justice to be served. There were several signs but nobody responsible for them.
