  • I just looked it up on the internet because I have read this question a few times lately and am SCARED for myself! I am about to have my 3rd c-section and had no idea this could happen. Anyways, some of the women said it was due to the following: endometriosis, "part of their uterus still hanging out. I guess doctors aren't perfect.", lumps, etc. Some were commenting that the incision site smelled badly, years after the surgery!!! I would get it checked ASAP. I hope it's an easy fix for you!!!!!!!

  • For sure I would go to the hospital. I had a c-section 2 years ago and that does not seem normal at all. it shouldn;t be painful 3 years later. I have feeling there now so pain there is not a good sign. Don't wait to see if it goes away...get it checked and know it was nothing them not get it checked and it turn into something worse.
