I'm not here to scare anyone just would love to hear some stories of other women who haemorrhaged after giving birth and what their outcome was.
I was given an emergency c section when i had my first baby 6 months ago and I was told on the day of my discharge that i had haemorrhaged and needed a blood transfusion. i felt fine within myself and was up and about 3hrs after the surgery, doing everything for myself and my new baby. However they neglected to tell me this one very important thing.
I refused the transfusion, those words absolutley terrified me, and was told that as long as i stuck to a high iron diet and overdosed on iron everyday I could go home. me being stubborn as I am and very excited about getting home with bubby gladly opted for this scenario instead.
I had home nursing for the next 7 days and they all were absolutely shocked that i was going about my day as usual after having such a heavy bleed. They all commented that I really should have taken doctor's advise and got the transfusion.
After all that i was just wondering if anyone else out there carried on regardless or if anyone did have the transfusion and what it was like etc.
Its now nearly 7 months on and I have never felt better and although every now and again after the birth i would get a little dizzy I never seemed to have any other problems or side effects.
Your stories would be great
