  • it depends on each person it took me 2 weeks after my son and i had him naturally with no drugs. I have also heard it depends on how much weight u gained during the pregnancy

  • I had a labor then a section and later two sections. My first one I was really sick with an infection and was kept in the hospital for over a week. Things were really hard when I came home finally. But my next two sections with out labor because of that bad experieince the first time my doctors made sure it didn't happen again, were not bad. I felt better within about 2 to three weeks after my last two sections. You're not supposed to walk up and down stairs for about three weeks after sections, at least I wasn't because of my history. I had an epidural for each of my three sections. I know like spinal anesthes. they can cause headaches too. I hope mommy5409 gets better! and op good luck to you and CONGRATULATIONS!!!
