    I had a D&C last thursday so almost two weeks ago, all went well and I healed fine!! Today though I started having horrible back pain and it's shooting down my legs and I'm having a weird crampy feeling, almost like menstrual cramps but a little different and they hurt!!! I am not sure if I should be concerned or if my body is just trying to get back to normal?? I have no idea??? Please help if you have experienced this or have any insight.. if continues tomorrow I will call the Dr but right now they are closed and I don't think it warrants a visit to the ER!

    I have not had this. Back pain can be normal in the beginning as your uterus contracts to it's normal size but yours sounds severe. Do you have a fever? Either way, better be safe than sorry. If this continues it may not hurt to go get seen by a doctor.

    Its possible you may have an infection and could need antibiotics. I had one after my mc as there was still some tissue left over in my uterus and it caused cramping pain. I would maybe call a health professional to get advice, over in the UK we have NHS direct where we can call anytime for medical advice, do you have anything like that?

    Well after I wrote this the pain got worse and worse and finally around 10:30 I rushed to the bathroom because of the pain and I felt like my body was pushing and I had a huge gush of blood and tissue and for about 7-10 mins of blood pouring out of me! I was able to call the surgcal center (they are there 24 hrs with nurse and doctors for questions) and they told me to get to the er and they said I had passed remaining tissue and would continue to bleed and cramp but it should get gradually better until it stops! So that was awful, they said I was basically in labor which is why it got worse and worse until I passed that!
