Labor. UG. My first labor was 56 hours, 3 and a half hours of pushing, then she wouldn't come out, so then I had a C Section. The epidural was a relief by then, I didn't even feel it. My second labor was similar, but I controlled it better. We planned the section with my 3rd. However, I had terribly sore nipples (worse than the regular 3 day soreness with my first two) because my baby had a short labial frenulum (the membrane between the upper lip and the gums) and she couldn't flange. And, a chunk of skin was torn off during the C Section, when the sterile dressing (the one that looks like plastic wrap backed with adhesive) was removed. I had a sore right where my leg bends. I was mess.
I had urinary tract surgery when I was in college. They removed polyps from my urethra, performed a meatotomy (they cut the urethra to make it larger) and it was dilated. Then, I formed a clot and couldn't pee for 2 days, and the catheter was placed incorrectly. I'm screaming for them to take the fucking cath out and they kept giving me Demerol, when I needed to drain the bladder, finally after a day, the Charge Nurse took a look and removed the cath. She said it was "defective" and she put in a new one, more than 2 liters was drained from my bladder. A few more hours and it would have burst. It took me more than a year to completely heal, and it still hurts if a "hold it" too long.
This was worse than labor, I am pretty sure. I read the chart later. At one point I was screaming for my Mommy. I found out later, in nursing school, when an adult
starts screaming for "Mama" or "Mommy" they are in some of the worst pain of their lives. It's a huge red flag.
