Hey everyone my second son Seth was born by emergency c section on the 24th not been given any information as to why or what really happened, I had the c section under general anaesthetic(sp?) so dont really remember much i know my bladder was damaged during delivery and i have to see a gynourinologist(sp?) to see if the damage is permenant or not on thursday am hoping to have the catheter taken out but have learned not to get my hopes up. I am really struggling with my recovery and am wondering if anyone can give me any advice, i am in constant pain even with max pain killers and f eel like i cant do anything. I try to do the odd bit of housework but i end up making more mess than i was trying to clean and i cant look after my eldest properly all i want is to give him a hug but I cant, i cant even lift our new born and have to have him put on me to feed which is upsetting. i feel soo useless and having this catheter stuck to my leg is making me feel soo blugh about myself but when i tried googling tips all i got was people saying they felt robbed of a normal delivery which i dont, i delivered my first son vaginally and am just happy that seth is healthy and here safe and sound. does anyone know what i mean when i say i feel useless, ugly and just generally crap if so have you got any tips??
