Has anyone had, or does anyone know of anyone having a torn uterus during c-section. I had my second son in October and my 2nd c-section and during the section my uterus tore. At the time the Dr performing the section suggested I have no more children due to my uterus healing very thin from my 1st section and will tear again making it unrepairable. This is was not my regular Dr. When "my" Dr returned from holidays I booked my 6 wk check-up and asked him everything. He advised that the Dr who performed the section panic'd and he has never had uterus tear he couldn't repair. He said having another baby has it's risks of a ruptured uterus during pregnancy and resulting in loss of the baby and may tear again during birth which "could" result in removal of the uterus, but it's a small % of risk. Anyone else have any advice or knowledge on the subject?
If you weren't to have any more babies they would have taken out your uterus then and there.
When I had my 2nd C/S the surgeon said it would be advisable for me not to have more babies but she wasn't saying not to. She said that if I were to have another I would need my uterus removed at that C/S. I have spoken with a dr about this and she said that I shouldn't count on the partial hysterectomy as they decide in surgery whether the uterus is stitchable or not. So you never really know until your there.
The Dr also told me that I should go to the hospital if I felt any pains that weren't normal cramping and stretching that you usually feel during pregnancy because with every pregnancy there is a risk of rupture but it is a small risk.
The Dr also told me that if I don't have a partial hysterectomy that it is good for your uterus/scar to wait 12 months between a birth and the next conception as that gives it time to heal properly and strengthen.
I was also informed that there is no evidence to support taking a baby out of the womb before 38 weeks and there was no way she would book me in before then because it would just be a waste of time having the baby in the nursery when it could still be inside the womb developing.
