Today is an emotinal day: 19 years ago, I gave birth to my daughter and all hell broke loose. I was 34 weeks amd went into labor with her. After a harrowing 42 hours, the nurse found she was laying sideways, her head on my bladder. They turned her ans 15 minutes later, I went from a 6-10 and she was born. Shortly afer, I felt a rip and to make a long story short, ruptured my uterus, perforating my bladder and vaginal wall. Hysterectomy, bladder repair surgery and 8 pints blood transfusion was the result. I was in the hospital a week and my daughter 8 days, due to jaundice, but otherwise, her lungs were mature and she was a healthy 5 lbs 11 oz. She's now a beautiful, grown sophomore in college. This experience gave me a formal diagnosis of PTSD and every year, I have an emotional day, but I also get pelvic pain. I have been through therapy to process this, but the experience is what changed my brain, I believe, into TMS. So my questions to you guys is, have any of you had something similar happen (PTSD) and on the day of the past event, TMS is worse? I know triggers can make pain worse, but I don't want to feel this way every year. My son's b-day was two weeks ago and his birth ended in an emergency c-section to save his life, so these two events have created some deep emotional issues. I've tried to not think about or dwell on the negative events that happened and just celebrate life, since both her and I could have died, but my brain keeps going back and the pain just keeps going. I haven't had pelvic pain for months, but TMS is defintely in the area with scar tissue and such, so to have it creep up now seems more than just a coincidence. What do you guys think?
