  • I was given tylenol 3's and took them for a couple of days. If you are still in that much pain this long after delivery, you should call your dr. You could have an infection. Are you walking around enough?

  • I agree with MomShawn70, I had an emergancy c-section it hurt for a couple of day but then I was able to get around. You should call your DR. asap if your in that much pain. Have your stitches healed?
