Hello again,
I was waiting for your reply.
I would suggest to take her to hospital if she is not there already.
As she is feeling pain for 2 days, any leakage of fluid needs to be checked.
She needs to rest in position where she finds it comfortable.
It can be sitting, lying supine or on left side, walking etc.
Taking warm shower, breathing exercises, massage can help.
Intermittent pain medicines like meperidine, fentanyl can be given under supervision of doctor.
Anesthesia like epidural or spinal is used when needed.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
