Thanks for your query. I am very sorry for your situation, its all about ADHERENT PLACENTA, as you are 22 weeks now, the confirmatory test for adherent placenta is MRI. If it gets confirmed, you may have to sacrifice your uterus after caesarean to prevent MASSIVE BLOOD LOSS.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow ups.
Wish you good health.
