I had stirrups too, forceps delivery, was awful!
I assume it was a pain killer then, just I read somewhere it helps to stop you bleed!
Although I guess if its an anti-inflammatory it could have the same effect?!
Diclofenic is a pain killer yes, but I didn't know it could go up your bum !
I was also sick in labour too so I wonder if that's why I couldn't take it in tablet form. xx
Hmm, i had this too..got told it was for pain BUT im allergic to any NSAIDS and it says so in big red letters all over my notes ect so i do hop that it wasnt aspirin/ibuprofen etc that they shoved up me bum, cause that would have been very silly of them lol.
I had 2 put up. I had paracetomol and voltoral. I felt it all as had no painkillers. It was weird feeling them but and I felt awkward moving about/sitting up until they dissolved - which only took a couple of hours. It felt a bit like having a tampon n the wrong place wen I tried sitting up and they kind of pushed in/got in the way.
OMG! I remember I had something stuck up my bum! I had forgotton about this completely. I was stitched up and I think it was a painkiller but I was too out of it on the g&a to remember. I was being prodded and poked around so much anyway as I had tears right into my rectum so having something else pushed up there really didn't make that much difference! I had my legs up on rests that attached to the end of the bed.
