c section aftermath? -***- Ontario 480 posts
14th Apr '10

I am 4 months pp, and having a ton of pain still after my stupid emergency c-section. I talked to my OB and went for an ultrasound the other day. The tech said she didn't see anything of major concern but to follow up with my OB as well.



Both my OB and the tech mentioned that if it's nothing more serious, then it is probably just my body taking a long time to heal. I am on my own a lot and carry the baby most of the time and take care of our household stuff on my own day to day since hubby works insane shifts.



Any ladies have anything similar? I just really thought I'd be doing better by this point. 4 months seems so long even if I'm doing a lot at home - I mean, so many women have c sections and have to carry other children around etc so I'm still worried and just wondering if there is anything I can do to speed up the healing process or get rid of the pain? anyone have any advice?

4 months!!! eeekkk!!! I didn't even hurt for 4 days?! (but I hear I'm one of the lucky ones) Wonder if there is an excesive amount of scar tissue? or maybe something inside is pulling because it healed to the scar? What hurts? The cut? or inside? or only when you do certain things?

Sorry I don't have advice for the pain but have they checked for cysts? My friend was in horrible pain for months after her c-section thinking it was because of the surgery. Turns out she had a giant cyst hiding on her ovary.

I personally would be asking for another opinion. Jeepers I looked after my other two kids and the baby and was completely healed (outside and in) within two weeks. It doesn't hurt to get another docs outlook on things.

If it was an emergency c section....they may not have taken their time much when cutting and I would be there is alot of scar tissue. Hope you feel better :(

Yeah it sounds like scar tissue.. my OB encouraged me to be kinda active after my csection to help break it all up and it seemed to have worked.

Makes sense to me. Sorta like when your period cramps are bad and you want to stay in bed but once you get moving they feel better. P.s I hate my MIL. She has been on my ass saying I should be perfect by now and acts like my complaining about pain is laziness or something...beeeeatch!
