c section Vs exercising

I had a c section, since then I didn t exercise. It s been 4 months now, I used to walk from time to time but yesterday when I tried jogging I felt some thing in the area of the incesion. It s not painful but it s boddering me. Is it because I m starting creating new mascules instead of the damaged ones?does anyone had c section and regained her old shape?

  • I would also check with Dr. I have had 3 c-sections and it took almost a year after my first one for the "tenderness" to go away on the incision. If i had to make an educated guess you could be stretching the muscles you haven't used in a while or the scar tissue. you should be safe to resume exercising by now but if your that concerned as your Ob.
