  • With my 1 bad labor ending section and two more sections I never had a section numbness problem. But when I had my wisdom teeth out part of my lower lip was number for several years. I finally adjusted to it being a bit numb on my lip and then suddenly one day I realized that the feeling had come back.

    I think you can definitely have numbness there because of what happened to me. What does your ob say about it your numberness?

  • I have had 2 C Sections, one lateral and one bikini line. They are both still numb pretty much and my oldest just turned 16.

  • It will always be numb because the nerves at the incision were severed.

  • I've only had one. It was an Emergency C-Section almost 2 years ago [June]. It's still numb.

  • I had 2 emergency sections 15 and 14 years ago. It's still numb, so I don't think I will ever get back feeling in that part of my belly.

  • I had 3 c-sections and the last one was 5 years ago. Its still numb...the whole area around the scar is too. Oh well...the prizes were worth it!

  • It's been almost 5 years since my last was born and it's still numb. I'm pretty sure it's going to stay that way.
