The attorney you talked to is a moron. Talk to a different one. The placentia shouldn't have been left inside and it wasn't just a "mistake." The doctor should have known better, he was being lazy and didn't do everything that he should have done. You've also got several ER visits and after having the remainding placentia removed there is enough evidence that the doctor didn't do what he was supposed to do. It sounds like the doctor who delivered your baby didn't even bother removing the placentia and just sewed you up after delivering your baby. That's no mistake!
Get all of your medical records from the ER visits and visits to your doctor and take them to a different attorney. The more info you have the better the case you can build.
I know what it's like not to have insurance and not being able to get into see a doctor. It's really frustrating. Some clinics have financial aid available for those who don't have insurance. I know that many IHC clinics will do that. I would call around and see what is available.View Thread
What I would like to know is why was the placenta left inside you in the first place? That should have been removed when you had your baby. I would go to a different doctor and get a second opinion and possibly sue the doctor who messed up in the first place. Leaving the placenta behind after delivery can cause many problems as you well know at this point. I wouldn't take silence for an answer.View Thread
My doctor told me the best medicine for swollen feet and ankles is a swimming pool. Since the pool opened at my apartment complex I have been going to the pool nearly every day. It's also nice to relax in a cool pool on a very hot day. This heat kills me if I can't stay cool.
It has done wonders for my swollen ankles and aching body. Not to mention a little weight loss. The past few weeks i've fallen a couple of times and going to the pool has helped soothe my sore muscles and joints from the falls and has helped me heal faster by taking the extra weight off my joints. It also helps calm the baby. My little guy moves around like crazy and it rocks him to sleep.
So go and relax in a pool and get some much needed relief from swollen feet and ankles.View Thread
My sister had a fibroid the size of a softball when she was pregnant with her daughter and had a lot of pain with it. What you are discribing is simular to what my sister went through and she had a normal healthy little girl.View Thread
You take prenatals all through out your pregnancy and if you plan to breast feed then you need to continue to take them. You need to make sure your baby gets all the neccessary vitamins it needs and you'll need the vitamins to because baby making takes work and you need more vitamins while pregnant.View Thread
Sorry I should have given you more info. Yes hot showers are fine. It's just sitting in a hot tub/spa for long periods of time that is harmful. Wearing a coat isn't harmful either.
Swimming in later pregnancy is very soothing for you and baby. It helps to take the weight off you and it sometimes can help baby go to sleep. My sister-in-laws all loved being in a pool while in their 3rd trimesters. Water exercises are also great for pregnant women because there is less impact on your joints and less harmful for baby.View Thread
Yes it is common to throw up during pregnancy. I would have to throw up before I ate breakfast every morning or I couldn't eat. It does get better as you get into your 2nd trimester.
I stretch every morning when I wake up and as far as I know it's fine. I had cramping pain in my 1st trimester and what you are discribing I would think that is what your pain is.
One thing you look forward to dealing with is swollen feet and legs. My doctor said that sitting in a swimming pool will help with that. But stay away from the hot tub. The hot water isn't good for pregnant women. It raises your body temperature and it affects the baby.View Thread
I was diagnosed early with GD and told I could only eat a limited amount of carbs for eat meal. I'm trying to do the best I can but I end up going hungry because most foods have alot of carbs. Even with exercise my blood sugars are all over the place.
Does anyone have any good receipes that are quick and easy and doesn't have a lot of carbs. Or know of a good website with some good receipes?View Thread
