Recovery with shirodkar versus McDonald cerclage
« on: November 01, 2015 at 02:03 PM »
Can anyone shed any light on what to expect with a shirodkar cerclage? I have had two previous McDonald cerclages, but will be having a shirodkar cerclage next week.  Thanks so much!
First pregnancy
Bed rest at 21 weeks due to incompetent cervix. Healthy boy at 38 weeks!

Second pregnancy
Cerclage at 14 weeks, no bed rest, healthy baby girl at 38 weeks/6 days

Third pregnancy
Cerclage scheduled for 11/11/15

Halo there, i got the shirodkar on the 20th of October. I spent 3 days in hospital afterwards. Some wonderful ladies here told me it takes about 3 weeks to ecover. I still feel some cramping after urinating. For the first 3 days after the procedure urinating was really painful. Since having the cerclage i also have twinges and back pain that comes and goes.
