This case involves a thirty-two-year-old female who gave birth with the assistance of a midwife and no complications were noticed during the vaginal delivery. Several weeks later, the patient began to develop abdominal pain and vaginal bleeding, and it was determined that the patient had retained products of her placenta. The patient underwent a D&C procedure to evacuate the retained products of childbirth, but the procedure was met with significant complications. The OBGYN acknowledged that the uterus was perforated during the procedure, but had decided to let the lesion heal on its own. Approximately eight hours after the procedure, however, the patient was rushed to the ER with severe abdominal pain and was discharged without a thorough workup. Two days later, the patient was rushed to an ER and a perforated colon of three centimeters behind the uterine puncture was identified. As a result, the patient required a colostomy and a forty-day hospital stay.
