Tori Spelling Has Emergency Post-Pregnancy SurgeryShana Aborn
People reports this afternoon that Tori Spelling has been in the hospital since Saturday, when she underwent surgery as a result of complications from her recent childbirth.
Tori gave birth to her fourth child and second son, Finn Davey McDermott, on August 30, and all seemed to be well. She has regularly posted loving messages and anecdotes on her website, ToriSpelling.com, giving no indication that anything was going wrong.
But her rep tells the magazine, “Tori underwent emergency surgery over the weekend due to complications from her C-section. She remains in the hospital and is resting comfortably.”
What could have gone wrong?
According to WebMD, cesarean section surgery poses the risk of complications including infection, severe blood loss, blood clots in the lung or legs, bowel malfunction and anesthesia-related nausea and headaches.
The site adds that for women with c-section scars, the risk of future complications increases with each cesarean delivery. Among the risks for women who have had more than one cesarean is the chance that the placenta will grow abnormally deeply into the uterine wall, leading to severe bleeding. Tori’s daughter Hattie was born by c-section last October – just ten months before her baby brother arrived.
Whatever the issue, we wish the Craft Wars host a speedy recovery and a quick return to her family.
