  • I don't know about the glue, I was stapled. But the numbness is common and I had my C section over 3 years ago and it still sometimes feels weird and a little numb around my scar.

  • I just had a c-section on july 3rd and still feel some numbness and they I think stiched me inside too but staples outside and took the staples out too soon so I had to have that strong tape stuff put on and gauze pads and stuff to cover it incase of any bleeding and I still have some pains in my stomach and down there sometimes

  • I was glued when my son was born 15 months ago... The color is typical and it will slowly fall off as you heal. I never noticed a numbness, but from what I have read many women have that sensation.
