  • yup! i do, I have had a c-section 19 months ago and still feel it every now and then. It got better at about a year but still hurts and itches on occasion.

  • Yep. I'm just over a year out of having had a C-Section and I still get some pain and weird feeling there sometimes.

  • Yes. I had my c-section 14 years ago and occasionally get pain. I have had it checked and it is healed. It is still early for you and you are still healing internally. I would take that as a signal to take it easy a little.
