I felt awful for days (maybe a week) before I delivered. I didn't feel better until after they gave me decadron a few days after delivery. I felt okay for a few days, then I felt like he#& after I was discharged. I started to get better about 6 weeks after delivery (retained placenta did NOT help), and it took me over a year to feel normal. My doctor said that my liver was still "a little angry" a few months after delivery, and I can't remember when the pain went away. It came back a few times last year when I had respiratory or stomach bugs. I finally feel healthy and fit now.
