I had one on Oct 31st, emergency, and was told the discomfort can last on & off for quite a few months. I was lucky and seemed to heal from it very fast, although I still have the numbness below my belly button. When I'm feeding my little guy, almost every feed my scar gets itchy. Hubby tells me it must be something in the mind about the connection between him & the scar. I dunno, it doesn't bother me any other time and the dr isn't concerend by it either.

I gave birth via C-section on Oct. 12 and occasionally still feel twinges of pain around the incision area (mostly when it's cold because of the A/C), and like many of you, still feel a numbness from the belly button down. My sister and cousin both gave birth via C-section 3 years ago and they say it takes a while for the discomfort to wear off. Hang in there!

I went through one on 10/15 and it is just now subsiding. It's mostly fine, but every once in a while I get those awful twinges of pain - ouch! Do you have numbness along the incision yet? I went from pain, to numbness, and then both went away.

I had a c-section on Oct.7 and I still have some discomfort in the incision area. The scar itself doesn't bother me but the area around it is really sensitive. I can't wear anything that buttons and zips (jeans) for long because it can actually start to hurt. People keep telling me it takes months before it feels as close to normal as you are going to get.

I too had a c-section and I occasionally have pain on my side where I tore a suture pocket but everything below my belly button is still numb- the Dr says that can take up to 18mo to return to normal. Every once and a while if I do too much my stomach muscles get sore like I've done a bunch of crunches... if only it were that easy!

My baby was born on the 20th of October and I also had a c-section. I should add this is my 2nd c-section. I don't feel any discomfort at all. I wish I could be more comforting to you. If you're worried I would suggest talking to your doctor about it.
