Ever since Mummykins came out of hospital she has had problems with her C section wound, when she left the hospital she was on antibiotics as is par for teh course I beleive with all C sections. However mummykins felt that something wasnt right as the wound was weeping ALOT, her legs had swollen to nearly triple their norma size, she couldnt eat and keep anything down and she is a type 1 diabetic aswell and her sugars were going all over the place. We mentioned this to the midwife that came to see us the next day and a swab was taken to check for infection. That was two weeks ago. Since then we have had other midwives here all assuring us that all was ok and one call out GP was called when there was a big section of puss coming from the wound, again we were told all was ok. However last night things progressed and I checked her wound as she was becoming increasingly concerned, I took the muslin square away from teh wound to be met with a gaping hole in teh wound and the most horrific stench you could ever imagine, it was so bad we were both gagging and it stank the entire flat out. Unable to raise a doctor on the phone I called NHS Direct and spoke to a doctor there, They spoke to Mummykins for about 20 minutes discussing what had been going on this end, suddenly mummykins broke down in floods of tears and handed me the phone, the kind lady doctor at the other end explained that she had been talking to her superiors and that they were horrified and disgusted that mummyins had been discharged by the community midwives while the wound was still weeping badly, furthermore they had called for an ambulance to take her in to hospital. Mummykins was admitted on the spot and is now back on the delivery suite with two intravenous antibiotic drips and her wound being packed in two places where she was coming apart. Now, it turns out that when the hospital read her notes they saw that a swab had been taken two weeks ago and that it had come back that mummykins did indeed have an infection, NOBODY has contacted us to tell us or to sort out any treatment for this infection since them results came back in, if they had thenm poor mummykins wouldnt be in the state she is on now. I am absolutly livid about all of this, if she had been treated correctly she would not be in this state now and I fully intend to seek legal advice over this (dont get me wrong here im not the type to claim over every little thing but I do feel very strongly about this) Furthermore the hospital will not alow me to go in and take our 2 week old daughter into se her mother for fear of our daughter bringing an infection into the hospital, weve no family nearby so that means im stuck and cannot get in to see mummykins. Mummykins will be distraught when she finds out that she cant see her new baby. It also means that yet again I am off work so we are now losing serious money, not that money is important right now but without money the bills are going to go to hell. Sorry for the rant but ladies, if you have had a C section and feel that something ist right, do not be fobbed off by a midwife saying its ok, its norma etc etc , get to A&E and get yourselves checked out. God what a mess, sorry for the rant people. Whoops, just realised I hadnt logged Mummykins out and me in.
