Avatar f tn After giving birth how long does it take for feet to stop being swollen ???
4268628 tn?1375044776 its the only thing swollen and I wasn't swollen before giving birth...so wasn't sure if I should be worried.
Avatar f tn I was sent to the hospital to be induced (I was a fingertip dilated)Dr inserted a cervidil(used to soften cervix and dilate it), after 12hrs when they removed it, I had failed to progress(didn't dilate), Dr couldn't even get the stick thru my cervix to break my water!! Had a csection a few hours later(didn't get to hold my baby right away), legs and feet stayed swollen almost a week after. On #3 now, 18weeks hoping for a smooth ride.it's really not as bad as it sounds.
Avatar f tn try not to have a lot of sugar and salt. I remember about a week after giving birth I woke up and my feet looked so skinny and small lol!
5627628 tn?1400009816 My feet and legs are swollen after giving birth this past Sunday. Anyone else going through it or went through it? How long before it went away?
Avatar n tn Whether it's walking running, the heat suddenly coming on, eating something hot or even if i get worked up about something! My hands get hot and red and slightly swollen, or my feet or both hands and feet or one foot and one hand or just one hand or one foot. It had been steadily getting worse over the years *I'm 20 btw* and i decided it was time to see a doctor since it was becoming very noticeable. It's typically worse in the summer.
349463 tn?1333575176 The only thing I'm not thrilled about is the after birth pains I'm still having and how swollen I am. Both should clear up in a week or two. I came home yesterday and my parents had been watching the kids at our house. The house was trashed so I ended up nursing the baby and then cleaning the house. Our first night at home was easy I only woke up my dh for help once around 5 am because the baby woke up my toddler and I can't pick her up right now.
1925043 tn?1371698915 I still only fit into my maternity tops but they feel a bit big on me. My feet have also gotten less swollen day by day. At first they were more swollen from all the liquids I got through my IV. I can almost wear my wedding rings again. I haven’t gotten up the nerve to get on the scale. I’m scared I will still not like the number. I’m not sure what my starting pregnancy weight way but I think I gained close to 50 pounds during those 8 months.
Avatar n tn one morning i woke up and could barely swallow bc my tongue was so swollen. it ended up going down on its own after a long period of hours. all of that happened last week. now, i have just awakend to a swollen upper lip. i dont know how much more of this BS i can take. i dont understand whats going on with me.
393893 tn?1283554830 i did get feeling back in them within hours of giving birth though. but oh lord i was swollen from the begining of my 3rd trimester until 6-8 weeks after delivery. but don't worry it does go away. i'm already back down to pre pregnancy weight.
280369 tn?1316705641 She was completely covered in vernix from head to toe because she was almost a month early. The last 2 deliveries I bled pretty bad after giving birth, but this time I only needed one shot of pitocin and the bleeding was minimal. It did however take longer to deliver the placenta (about 25 min). This was by far the easiest and fastest labor and delivery I've ever had.
Avatar n tn swelling ( edema) of feet and ankles is common after a surgery or giving birth or while in third trimester of pregnancy,,,,other than that its a symptom not to be over looked, it usually a coronary symptom,,,please all of you see your doctor,,
Avatar n tn For the past 5-6 weeks, I've been having numbness/tingling in my arms, hands and legs and feet. I've also had tingling in the face area.........mouth and tongue. My eyes sometimes feel itchy as sometimes my skin. I've had headaches and felt light-headed. Sometimes my face gets flushed and so do my arms, like I'm burning under my skin. My finger joints feel sore. I can't hold a book or magazine and turn the pages, my hands and fingers feel sore.
Avatar n tn when she itched them too hard( ones on legs) they would break and blood spots would show up and more bumps would appear. we broke up about a month after these itchy bumps showed up on her. we broke up about a month after these itchy bumps showed up on her. About a month or so after we broke up these bumps like hers started to appear on my legs(inner thigh).. then i got a bump on my penis head and shaft. then i got a few on my hands/fingers that were barely noticeable.
Avatar f tn And truth be told, Nobody has figured out to why I swell up exactly 3 months after I have a baby. I do have a friend who swelled up right after giving birth to her daughter. I told her to get it checked out, she tried, but her doctor refused to do anything and told her it was post delivery swelling and it will go away. 6 weeks later she was admitted to the hospital because she was having troubles breathing. The hospital did an xray and saw a huge mass in her lungs.
Avatar f tn My body couldn't handle it anymore. I had severe back pain and my feet would sometimes be swollen over 24 hours straight. Now I'm on bed rest. It all depends on how your body handles pregnancy.
Avatar f tn She left her then 10 year old in charge of a two year old. Smh. She kept commenting on my swollen feet. I was on pitocin which can cause you retain fluid. It was awkward and uncomfortable with her there. I 100% understand how you feel. I would've flipped out if she came in while I was pushing.
Avatar n tn I was hoping I would be able to read the insert that was supposed to come with the filled prescription, but the pharmacy didn't include it in the bag. Anywho, can anyone tell me if they had swollen, sore breast and sore nipples when they first started taking this type of bc? My stomach is also a little tender to the touch. I'm just wanting to see if anyone else experienced these side effects when first starting this type of bc. I used to use the Nuva Ring prior to the switch.
Avatar n tn Additionally, the skin above my upper lip became dry, red and irritated. About 2-3 weeks after that, I started experiencing swollen eyelids as well as dry, wrinkled, red, itchy patches above and below my eyes. I could not apply the most mild lotion to those areas because it would burn, but it was so dry I wanted to do something.
284738 tn?1283110419 I was so scared of giving birth that I didnt waste any time asking for pain meds, lol! I was so comfortable that I took a nap untill I started to feel pressure! I told the nurse that I needed to go number 2 and she said thats because it was time to push!! I argued with her for about 5 minutes when she told me that if i had to go do it in bed! She didnt believe me!! I was so mad that i bared down and craped right there and made her clean it up!!
Avatar m tn Usually women with MS have symptoms go away during pregnancy and come back 6-9 months after giving birth. Researchers have even tried to recreate the pregnancy hormones to give to MS patients to help with the MS.
Avatar n tn I have been on Yasmin for 2 1/2 years, after the birth of my second son. I am going to my GYN tomorrow for a 6 month check up as well as to see if decreased sex drive is a major side effect???? I hope so b/c I would love to switch pills and be OK!!!!! Any one having the same problem and would like to comment I would love to hear back from you!! It's becoming a problem in my marraige and is upsetting me greatly!!!
Avatar n tn here recently i have had numb hands and fingers everyday, and my feet itch like crazy. I have really bad pain in my upper stomach, really bad worse than giving birth. I had a period for only 5 hours (weird, never done that before) and cramping in my stomach too. I know how my body reacts when i have a period and its doing what it usually does but there is no blood.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have been noticing lately that I'm hungry all of the time, even right after i eat. I am 5'10 and I weigh between 116 and 125 (it fluctuates). and am 19 yrs old. I eat all of the time and have been this way most of my life, but here lately I am even hungry after I eat. I will feel my stomach being so full I cant eat anything and still feel as hungry as I did before I started eating. I also have noticed that the glands that are on my neck have been swollen for over a month.
Avatar n tn say if you will have to get a hysterectomy right after giving birth? My dr. said I am the first person he has ever seen get pregnant after this surgery, so I am trying to look at it as a miracle, especially since I certainly wasn't trying.
Avatar n tn I had my tubes tied 5 years ago, I had made a harsh decision to do so after I lost my daughter 31 days after birth. All I know is I never wanted to go threw that again. Almost 5 years to the day I was feeling really crummy, cramp,bleeding after my normal period. I went to the hospital and told them I had my tubes tied, routine was still to do a pregnacy test and low and behold I was pregnant. I had an ultra sound and it was NOT a tubal pregnancy but I did miscarry.
Avatar n tn Although my first IVF cycle was not successful, I believe I will get pregnant this time. Like you I had my tubes tied after giving birth to one child. He's 11 years old now. To answer your question about retreival, yes, 9 days is possible. My doctor retrieved 9 mature eggs after only 7 days of stimulation. I started my bcp's Monday and will begin injections this time May 9th. What I will do different this time is to relax and rest more. I'm going to start getting massages.
Avatar f tn I always get small yeast infections by my birth control pills (Errin) but now this is still swelling even more even after my doctor prescribed Diflucan yesterday. Do I need more time for the Rx to kick in? I can't even walk right now because the swelling is so bad or wear pants. Why wouldn't it be red if it was an infection? Did I damage something inside. Please help!
Avatar f tn This discussion is related to Problems after bowel resection. In February 2006 I had an emergency bowel resection. For no apparent reason, a large portion of my small intestine had twisted and the blood supply to my intestine had been cut off and died. About 40% of my small intestine (ileum and ileocecal valve) had to be removed. For the next 2-3 months I had horrible diarrhea after everything I ate. Within one week I went from 135 lbs. to 115 lbs.
