It’s important you know what questions to ask your healthcare provider before your C-section delivery, or any other women’s health surgery such as:
- Fibroid removal
- Breast reconstruction, lumpectomy, or mastectomy
- Cosmetic surgery, including various plastic surgery procedures and breast augmentation or reduction
With C-sections being the most common surgery in the United States, women should feel empowered and prepared before delivery.
More than half of patients who have a C-section are prescribed an opioid, but opioids are not for everyone. Opioids may cause nausea, vomiting and constipation, and can make you feel drowsy or confused. These side effects can slow down your recovery.
