surgery during pregnancy

User - posted on 11/08/2012 ( no moms have responded yet )




I had surgery on the 2nd to fix a blocked umbilical hernia. It wasnt not an option and at 23 weeks pregnant I was terrified. I ended up having a successful surgery, however ended up going back for a blood patch to fix the spinal fluid leak in my back and stop the migraines. It has now been 6 days since my surgery and its been 3 days since my blood patch. I have not had a BM ( been on softeners and took Milk of mag as order by my dr and midwife) still nothing and am having numbness and tingling on my whole right side.. I guess I just want to know Im not alone in at least one of these. Has anyone else every had anything like this? Surgery? Epidural issues? Blood patch?
