Back pain and brown discharge

10/12/2009

Question:

Hi, I am 24 I have 4 kids all was c-section.My tubes are tied now.I have had lower back pain in the left side mainly when I sit down for 2 weeks and also brown discharge that started about 2 days ago.Can you please let me know whats going on.

Answer:

Low back pain and discharge can signal an infection. Please see your provider and get examined so that you can be treated before the infection gets worse. It is hard to say what kind of infection without an examination, but it is really important for you to get treated! Over-the-counter medication probably won't be helpful.
 
Hope this helps.
