    I am 2 wkd post section and will be the first to admit I overdo. Just so ready to get back to my life. Noticed sat I was having chills and sweats but chalked it up to all the trauma my body went through and lack of sleep. Then yesterday noticed yellow drainage on my clothes where the incision is. Saw the doc and she gave me a shot of antibiotics and orals to start. Recheck Monday but if it gets worse may have open it and drain it and poss get admitted for IV antibiotics. I feel like total crap, ache from head to toe, wake up drenched in sweat, my whole pelvis and back ache and throb, along with sleep deprivation and boobs hurt from pumping every 3-4 hours... I'm miserable!!! Just want to sit down and cry. Anyone else???

    My c-section was on the 5th of November. I was readmitted to the hospital
    on the Sunday the 13th and I've been here ever since. They are not sure what is wrong with me. My fevers run as high as 103.2. It's awful being seperated from my new baby.

    I am so sorry to hear you are going through that I hope your health inproves soon. Had my section on the 6th my due date was actually the 13th. Really hoping this resolves for both of us.
