Reality star Kim Kardashian might need to have a hysterectomy following the birth of her second child with rapper Kanye West.
She suffered from pre-eclampsia and placenta accreta with her first pregnancy and admits that it may be a rare case this time around which may cause her to need to have her uterus removed.
She said, “With the issues I had last time, my risk of having pre-eclampsia and placenta accreta are increased and there’s not a whole lot I can do to prevent it, so my anxiety is a little high leading up to my delivery. In a very rare case, I might need a hysterectomy after delivery if my condition is severe enough, but luckily my doctor doesn’t think this will happen. So as time goes on, I am stressing out less and trying to go with the flow.”
Kim also talked on her website about how her conditions affected her first pregnancy with North. She said, “We induced my labor and I had North soon after. Right after delivery, the placenta usually then comes out. Mine did not. My placenta stayed attached inside my uterus, which is a condition called placenta accreta.”
She added, “My doctor had to stick his entire arm in me and detach the placenta with his hand, scraping it away from my uterus with his fingernails. How disgusting and painful!”
How could she walk after that?!!?
