By the way !I wish I known this b4 :
A couple of day at home from the hosital the incision oozed out blood is okay,and somer case seriously like bruises on over stomach or thigh are okay too .Acording to my doctor (After it cost me a trip to ER charged me ~1,000.) because the blood bleed out,and find some outlet to go before it can heal

  • I have had 3 c sections and in my experience it did take me a whole year to be "completely" healed. Now that does not mean I hurt or felt discomfort for the entire year but there were time that I would still feel a tingle or tug now and then. My recovery was alot shorter with each c section I had. My last was on in Sept 07 and I would say I was fully recovered within 4 to 5 months. Everyone is different, but if this is your first, expect a little longer recovery time. Hope this helps.
