    I had a d&c in August for retained tissue after miscarrying naturally in June. The procedure is very simple and over with in about half an hour. I woke up with period type cramps and bleeding but they gave me painkillers and I felt ok. I was back home about 2 hours later. I bleed for 12 days after, but this can vary for everyone from hardly anything up to 14 days. The day after the op I had no pain at all just light bleeding. Hope all goes well :hugs: xxx

    Omg this weeknd was such a perfomance, it was actually the most mortifying experience ive been through. Got to the hospital at 8am ready and prepped for theatre at 9. Sat waiting still at 2pm so the nurse collared the surgeon on the ward and asked when i was going to theatre. Surgeon came to chat to me and said that she would prefer it if i had medical management of my miscarriage as the sac was so small she was concerned with the d&c being a blind procedure, she might not be able to get it all so i may have to ave the medical management in the end anyway. So i said ok and had my first pessary at 5. Nothing happened, not even a bit of bleeding. Had my 2nd lot of pessaries at 9.30 and i went to sleep. Woke up and id leaked all over myself.....great i thought at least its done something. Not passed anything constructive though at this point, just clots. So anyway, surgeon came at 9 in the morning to have another chat and to examine me!She had a really good dig around in my womb and said oh i can feel its come away, got a pair of forceps and started digging round in there and pulled out the sac =-O in the middle of the ward!I was like omg!!!!!!And she dug around a couple more times to get out what she could and said she was confident shed got it all and gave me the last dose of pessaries to clear the rest out and said shed be back to examine me later!!!!So after that i was like oh great i can finally go home!Hours ticked by and at 2 the male dr came to examine me and told me my cervix was still dilated slightly and tht i needed to starve because if it wasnt closed the next time i was examined it indicated something was still in there and id need to go to theatre!!I was fuming!!I was like so after all this id have to go to theatre anyway?Sooooooo.....i waited some more and the surgeon finally came at 7.30pm to examine me again, and was suprised when i told her wht the other dr had said, as that wasnt what shed planned at all. So she examined me, said my cervix was closed and i could go home!Finally!What a bloody performance!Needless to say i had a couple of beers and a big fat takeaway :) xxx

    Jesus Nat - your experience sounds horrific!

    Sometimes I wonder why women going through m/c's are treated like second class citizens?

    I've not had a bad experience personally but I know so many women have?

    I hope you feel a bit better now you are home?
