Cesarean Childbirth (cont.)
Cesarean Childbirth Medications
- If the problem is simply inadequate postoperative pain control, proper pain medication will be prescribed.
- If a simple bladder infection, an uncomplicated kidney infection, or a simple wound infection is present, appropriate antibiotics will likely be given and an appointment for a follow-up evaluation will be made.
- If a blood clot is not found in the leg and it has not moved, then the woman may be either admitted to the hospital or sent home with appropriate anti-clotting injections (this varies from hospital to hospital).
