Surgical abortion done. Started back pain and abdominal pain. What's going on?

I had a surgical abortion on the 2oth. This day I had extreme back pain and lower abdominal pain , but of course this as normal. They told me to take IP and Tylonol to relieve this pain and use a heating pad . I felt fine the following day and this trend continued for three days. Now, out of nowhere, I woke up in the middle of the night on the 25th with extreme pain just like the day I had it done. My thighs hurt, my back hurts and my stomach hurts almost to the point where I want to cry.

Thanks for the query.
Usually after D&C it will take sometime for complete secession of bleeding and pain.
This depends on the gestational age when the procedure was performed and the possibility of infection etc.
But as you are having severe pain better to consult gynecologist once and get re-examined and if needed go for ultrasound to rule out the possibility of pelvic inflammatory disease or retained products.
Take care.

Hi aml ! For quick relief take diclofenac tab for pain, and dicyclomine tab for abdominal muscles cramp. Then next day meet the doctor who done abortion, about your complication. Take care. Bye.

Although some pain and cramping is normal for 2 to 3 weeks after a surgical abortion but a severe pain may be an indication of some internal organ damage caused by the procedure or it could be infection or it could be because of clots.
I advise you to consult your doctor immediately and get yourself examined to look for the cause and subsequent treatment.
