I had the same problem. I had both of my boys by c-section, & after both surgerys every time I coughed or sneezed it hurt real bad. I asked my doctor about it & he said that it was normal, & that it would be tender for a few months after the c-setion. And I think around the 3rd or 4th month after the c-section I felt normal. I'm not sure if this was you'r 1st c-section or not, but I will tell you that after my 1st c-section, I got pregnant with my 2nd son soon after & when my belly started to grow the scar from the previous c-section did hurt pretty bad. But all in all the after product is well worth it. I hope you start feeling better soon.
