So it is 4 weeks after my c section and ever since the second week post partum I have been having horrible gas pains everywhere almost in my body...ubder my ribs in the back on the sides of my boobs, my chest just everywhere well lately they have been getting better but now I keep having weird stuff like i get this on and off pressure in my anal area and sometimes in my vaginal area as well and today I have a headache and i feel hot and my body just hurts and have been having intermittent pains in my sides and back on both sides...so my question is...has anyone experienced any of these symptoms and if yes are they normal? ps. usually when i feel the sharp pains I have a sudden urge to pass gas...normal and also sometimes I get dizzy spells...help?!

i had the same issues and I also took almost a week to have a bowel movement. I feel better now and time to time I feel weak and dizzy...just keep taking your prenatals.

These posts are very comforting to me. I am 4 weeks pp and am still having bad gas. It is not constant, but usually hits me around bedtime. It is good to know I'm not the only one!

these posts are comforting to me also, because i've been having mostly the same pains and i'm 3 months PP. it actually gives me bad anxiety because it makes me feel like there is something serious that's wrong with me, and the chest pains make me think that there is something wrong with my heart. i also have been getting a pain lately near my vagina, but that's probably gas pains also. it's so strange because i never had any of these pains before i was pregnant, and after i had my c-section it's like my body is falling apart or something.

I just delivered 10/11/12 and have had the worse smelly gas and poo imaginable. So you are not alone. Glad I read that others are having the same issue. Now what to do about it???? Walking has been helping me move it out more.
