  •  The day I got home from the hospital(I took a shower myself the day of c-section) my dh had a seizure and I had to take him to the ER. Not much of a problem. It took only a couple of days before I was 100percent.No problems with the staples either,believe me.

  • depends on the person, i was completely back to normal.. no pain or anything at the point of incision by 4 weeks... it just depends i think on the person and their pain level etc.

  • Each person's recovery is different. My first one I healed pretty fast, also had to because I was still in high school & no one was helping me. My second one took a little longer cuz my body was still in the healing process from my first one (my kids are only 19 months apart). Just try to move around as much as you can, and when the doctor gives the okay do late exersizing like going on small walks & then just work your way up!
