    Default d&c...thoughts...

    For those who have had a d&c I'd appreciate your thoughts on it. If my u/s Monday shows no ectopic then I'm sure I'll be facing the usual options of expectant, medical, or surgical management.Has anyone done a d&c with local anesthetic or an epidural instead of general?

    With my last loss, I had a d&e, which is pretty much the same thing. They gave me some meds through my IV, which made me really relaxed. I knew they were in there working but didn't really care. Kwim? If you have any questions pm me or just ask on here. Praying for you always!

    I am so sorry. Many hugs coming your way. I had a d&c under general. While it was a horrible situation that got me there, I don't think I would have wanted an epidural for the procedure. After four c sections, the recovery at the hospital was way faster than after my c sections. I believe I left within the hour after the D&C and it took hours for my spirals to wear off after the c sections. Also, the thought of having another poke in my spine was no appealing...well, not that I was givin a choice. That be

    Said, when I miscarried this last time it felt "good" to go through it naturally at home. I felt that it gave my little baby that was not ment to be a proper send off. Like the pain and process really ment something. I know that sounds hokey, but 18 months later I feel connected in a very special way to that baby. I needed a d & c after the actual mc due to a retained peice that was left in my uterus.

    Anyway, sorry about the excessively long reply. I hope you can find peace. Hugs

    I've had both general and "awake"-anesthesia d&c and I will say the awake one was much more emotionally traumatizing to me than general anesthesia (except for the waiting to go in, where you're just a bundle of nerves).

    If I ever had to go through it again I would absolutely pick general...

    I'm sorry that you're facing this as a possible outcome
