  • My Dr. said 4-6 weeks, but for me I was up and doing almost everything like normal at 2 weeks. Definitely fully recovered by 6 weeks.

  • 4-6 weeks! and it also depends on how well and quickly you begin to recover starting in the hospital. My bff had twins, and they told her that as soon as she was up walking ( after her c-section) she could go home. Wow! It took her a little longer cause of where the girl was to recover from all the surgery. But what took the longest to recover from was the anistia that they used.

  • I was fine by 3 weeks. It depends on the person.

  • What they said but it really depends on the person! Same day of my c-section I was literally up and walking around and felt FINE. Everyone was shocked. And from there my "recovery" was so minimal I couldn't even tell I had a baby. No pain (except when I twisted a certain way it hurt so I just didn't do that!) I walked fine, everything was good! =)
