C-Section Pains (10 Mons Later)

Jacqueline - posted on 11/18/2010 ( 3 moms have responded )




I had my baby almost 10 months ago, but went back to work 3.5 weeks after she was born. (Mind you I had a c-section). I was not advised to do so, but financially I had to go back.

I keep having the feeling of pinched nerves right along my mark. Is this normal to feel?

I had pain after mine months later as well. A physical therapist recommend I massage the scar two to three times a day to help with the scar tissue which was likely the cause of the pain. I can't remember how long it took but the pain did stop shortly after doing so. It can't hurt to try. I have talked to people who had pain years later.

I have always had pain along where my scar is and my son is two now, I asked the doctor and she said that it can last for years.
I am pregnant again now and have had terrible pain with this one and I need another c-section so maybe this one will be our last.
If the pain is really bad then talk to your doctor.

I don't have any feeling on my belly. I asked the doctor about it and he said it's perfectly normal. He said it's also perfectly normal to only feel pain. If it's gets really bad then I would go to the doctor.
