  • I had my c-section 5 months ago, second one also. This one was also different for me. My first one I was fine after just 3 weeks. But this one has taken much longer. I am not sore, but I have limited sensation in my skin around the scar. I know the scar tissue is worse this time too, my doctor told me, so I was expecting a longer recovery.
    I don't really know what advice to give you, just wanted to tell you that you are not alone. I guess I would wait a little longer, and if it continues, maybe call your doctor to see if they want to check you? But I would assume that if you don't have any infections, that you are healing right.
    Oh, just remembered, my doctor told me that we have 21 layers of tissue that has to heal, so no wonder it takes a little time...
