Shortness Of Breath After Cesarean Section?
Hello, good morning, my mother just finished giving birth to twins, so she had a cesarean section, but after a few days after the surgery, her chest was tight, it was difficult to breathe, what was the cause? Even though I have used oxygen but still there is no change, the breath is still short
The tightness you experience can be caused by many things that may be related to the operation and your pregnancy, or not related at all. Some things that might be a factor:
Side effects of pregnancy drugs
Asthma is an inflammatory condition of the airways that can cause shortness of breath. If you previously had asthma, your asthma could be in a relapse condition. Heart problems that can occur in pregnant people, one of which can cause a swollen heart and cause shortness of breath. If before the operation there were complications in your pregnancy, it could be that the tightness you experienced was caused by the side effects of the drugs given, where indeed these drugs are needed so that the complications you experience do not get worse which can be dangerous. The risk of surgery can also cause the shortness you experience.
To find out what you are experiencing, you can ask your doctor. Because to determine what you are experiencing, it is necessary to directly examine you. And basically, it's your doctor who knows best what you're going through. You can discuss with your doctor what to do next.
I hope this helps.
