I had a c-section 8 months ago. The spinal went very well, that's what I was most concerned about, but I didn't feel it at all. I will have to say that from all the medicine, I shook a lot on the table while they were doing the procedure (because of all the meds), that's what my husband remembers the most. They get you up the next morning to get your working your muscles again, it was hard, but the sooner you get up and get morning, the better you'll feel and the faster you will recover. I was in the hospital for 5 days total with the c-sectipn coming on the 2nd day, by the time I got home I was moving around just fine. Just have to watch what you lift so you don't tear the incision open, or pull the stiches that are in the inside. Had the staples removed a week later, and they didn't hurt at all either. Good luck, I'm sure you will do fine.
