No, I didn't have a drain... I don't think, LOL. It's all a bit of a haze now. I had an emergency section due to failure to progress (was stuck at 3cm, was put on a drip and got to 9cm, then stalled there) after being in labour for 32 hours.

I had to have an Emergency C for a whole host of reasons. I was in labour for 32 hours and only dilated 4cm (i was already 4cm when i went into triage after 15 hrs!), my cord was wrapped around my LO's neck twice so he was being strangled everytime i had a contraction and his heart rate plummeted, he had turned back to back and his head hadn't engaged. To top it all of i had to have an epidural at the 30 hr mark as they thought a section might be imminent due to foetal distress and it made my blood pressure drop. At that point i was told that it would be too dangerous for me and the LO to try dilating me fully with a drip, there was no way they would risk me attempting to birth naturally and that was that.

Yea I had one!! Ended up with an emergency section due to failed ventouse, (as he got stuck). Had the drain in for about 24 hours. Think mine was in because I lost quite a lot of blood at the time of the section??

yep i had one , they put them in if you lose alot of blood so they can measure what you continue to lose after surgery has finished

they left mine in 2 days and it didnt hurt pulling it out, but felt very very strange

Ahh so it looks like you only have a drain if you are losing a lot of blood. Well next time i'll be opting for an elective section so oblood loss should be minimal and a drain won't be needed.

I forgot about the noise it made ...eugh! You'd think the'd turn the suction off when pullingit out to make it less painful.

Oh well, thanks ladies my question seems to have been answered. I thought it mught have been because i was under general anaestetic but maybe not.

High blood pressure, induced on a drip for 5 hours. Contractions were 1 minute apart but I wasn't dilating (only 2cm!) and little mans heartbeat was dropping every contraction so had to have emergency section at 4am!
No drain, and I've never heard of anyone having one.

I assumed it was a normal c-section thing - glad you asked this question!!

I have one (sorry to hijack ya thread)

did anyone have internal stitches, with like an internal wire with beads on the end (outside the stomach at the ends of the incision) which was removed after 5 days??

I didn't Tinks, I had staples which were removed after 4 days which turned out to be a big mistake, the incision started coming apart a couple hours after they were removed.

No I didn't Tinks. I didn't have to have any stitches removed so I assume they used dissolvable ones.
