Audra’s Story

In 2003, I found out that I was pregnant. At 14 weeks along, the baby’s heartbeat stopped and I had to have a D&C. I had never had surgery prior to this. I had the surgery and went home, the whole time being very sore all over, but attributed it to how one would typically feel after surgery. The next day the pain was getting worse and my mother-in-law convinced me to go back to the hospital. My bloodwork came back off the charts and they admitted me. I knew that the doctors had not seen much of this as they were in my room on laptops looking up information about MH. After days in the hospital, I recovered. At the time, I was so sad about losing the baby that I didn’t understand the magnitude of what had happened to me. I started looking into MH months later and realized that I am lucky to be alive. No one in my family has ever had issues with surgery. I have not had my daughter tested but will always have the doctors treat her as if she is MH susceptible if she never needs surgery.
