Cesarean Section (C-Section)

Side Effects of Cesarean Section

As with any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with cesarean sections. Even when a c-section is planned, it can require extensive monitoring as well as these complications:

  • Pain in the incision
  • Needing blood transfusions
  • Contracting infection postpartum (for example: urinary tract infection
  • Internal uterine scarring
  • Blockage of the intestines or a bladder injury
  • Bleeding
  • Delayed return of bowel function
  • Blood clots

It’s important to understand the side effects of cesarean section before making your choice to have the surgery or not. Speaking with a doctor at Florida Hospital will help you understand this procedure and how it may affect you and your baby.
