Hello and welcome,
I understand your query and concern.
It was a difficult cesarean section. The recovery is typically delayed in such cases please do not worry.
The absent periods may be due to breast feeding, stress
, any other medical or hormonal
If she is having a swelling on feet then the following conditions must be ruled out.
where due to low hemoglobin
and low proteins there is swelling. A hemogram and serum proteins or liver function test will rule this out.
problems can lead to swelling and a kidney function test will be needed.
3. hormonal imbalances like cushings disease, thyroid dysfunction
and sheehans syndrome that occurs due to excess blood loss during delivery are other potential reasons.
The commonest cause is breast feeding. However you must get her examined by a doctor as well as investigated for the swelling and menstrual issues.
Meanwhile just see that she has a healthy diet rich in proteins [ meat and milk], 2 fruits every day and fresh vegetables with sprouts to help build up her hemoglobin as well as replenish proteins.
Hope this satisfies your query.
Thanks for using HCM.
Feel free to ask any more questions that you may have.
