  • I stopped having pain after my c-section at about two months. I never had any problems. I have a numb spot above my incision but other than that you can't even tell I had one. The scar is barely even noticeable. Maybe you should call your doctor and see why your still having problems. Because you shouldn't be hurting six months later.

  • I stopped having pain from my c-section after a few weeks. I think you should call your OB because a stabbing pain 6 months out is not normal.

  • I stopped having pain after my csection within a few months. I still do get itchy spots and it has been 13 yrs. I would love to be able to unzip my scar, scratch the itch and zip the scar back up. I would call your OB and get checked out, that just doesn't seem normal to me.

  • I guess I'm lucky. After 14 months of having a c-section, I had no problems. I can hardly tell the scar is there. No itching or pain like others say. I would go to the doctor. Something doesn't seem right.
