Question: stomach problems

 patches - Fri Dec 17, 2004 10:57 pm

i recently had a baby 7 wks. ago. my doctor felt a lump shortly after delivery, and thought i may have fibroids. in the past couple of weeks i have had three episodes of abdominal pain and lower back pain, followed by projectile vomiting. i've also noticed that my vision has gone worse abruptly. i do wear glasses. my mouth is always dry, and i have periods where i'm always thirsty. i did start having sex again two weeks after i had my baby. and i'm breastfeeding my baby. i don't know if i'm pregnant again or what. none of the vomiting has been accompanied with nausea. just pain before it happens. can anyone help?

User avatar Hello:
I really recommend you see your doctor. You could be developing an infection. Do you have a temperature above 99? It is possible that having sex so soon after childbirth that bacteria entered the uterus, causing an infection. Whatever the reason for your symptoms, it is important that you be checked out by your OB-GYN doctor ASAP.
Please let me know what you find out.
Kind regards,
