My friends daughter had a c section after many hours of exhaustive labour,and all appeared to go well, she went home and then inthe middle of the night had to be rushed back to hospital in extremely critical condition- massive infection, they didn't know what it was, seemed to be in her lungs, but they couldn't diagnose the source of infection-anti-biotics weren't touching it. Anyway, she was near death-the family was called in, but they were able to do an emergency operation in the middle of the night and her gut was full of poison.The hospital of course is covering their ass, saying it was ''nothing to do with the c-section''and nobody is talking. The family, of course is justvery thankful they were able to get to the bottom of the problem and fix it.She was weeks recovering, but is now pretty much back to normal, but that's as close to death as you can get. This was not an ''elective c section'' although she looks like a well built woman for bearing children, she clearly can't deliver naturally[ this was her second]. Anybody else have such an experiance?
