I went to the hospital Feb.14 of this year, to find out that I had an ectopic pregnancy, and was bleeding internally, I did not know I was pregnant, I was in severe pain, passing out. My right fallopian tube had ruptured, I lost 900ml of blood,and was given a blood transfusion, almost died actually, the hospital I went to did not have an Ob department, but at the last minute they found a general surgeon that saved my life! I am 25 years old and have never had a pregnancy before this. The surgeon was wonderful, he removed my right ovary and fallopian tube, and also my appendix due to all the blood. I have 27 staples. I find myself a week later having a very difficult time coping with this, I constantly have flashbacks of being in the room before the surgery, Although I am thankful and blessed to be alive, I still have feelings of fear, and extreme sadness in losing my baby, they said I was between 3-6 weeks. He also did an exploratory on me and said everything else looked fine, except my left fallopian tube showed minimal constriction, I am scared of the thought of am I ever going to be able to conceive? I just do not know how to cope with any of this. View Thread
