Hi. You may recall my post about 6 months ago expressing my joy in regards to my younger sister having her baby girl. The baby was born by emergency c-section after several hours of unproductive labor. It is now 6 weeks after the birth and my sister is having a terrible time with bleeding. She bled normally for the first couple of weeks after the birth, then it slowed down (but never truly went away completely, and now she's bleeding again. The bleeding is quite heavy at times, especially when she is more active - like walking up and down the stairs. Sorry if this next part is TMI, but I think it is another important part of what's going on here. She's also started to pass what appears to be large clots and chunks of tissue. My question is for those of you who have had c-sections, how long did you bleed afterwards? Is it normal to bleed this long? She has her 6 week check-up this week, but here's another interesting dilemma. She recently found out that the doctor who did her c-section, suddenly resigned. Now she's left wondering if he left for some sort of incompetency and is it possible if he could have messed up her c-section? Thanks for any help you can provide.
