Im havin issues so sorry if im rambling... I had an emergency csection and tubal ligation on 4/1/13. I had the normal bleeding and clots for two weeks then spotting off and on for the 3rd & 4th weeks. A few days ago I started bleeding bright red blood and passing clots of all sizes, none bigger than a golfball tho. Today I passed a clot and bled through the pad and my clothes. I seem to only pass clots when I am on the toilet and I bleed more while im there too! Im also having slight burning around my incision, some cramping, pain along my shoulder blades and SEVERE CHILLS! at times I feel like im going to freeze to death! Is this normal for a csection & tubal? Is it to early to be having a period?? Idk whats going on!

Go to the ER. You should never feel like that.

Exactly. You're having the clinical signs of sepsis.

They have to do bloodwork. If you feel comfortable waiting then go ahead. Have you checked your temp?
