Hi girls, I had a c-section 23 months ago. Everything went well and it was an uncomplicated success. In the few months after surgery i still had the residual pain that is to be expected but it soon went away....until now. The past few days i have been getting the most excruciating pains down there. They come and go fairly quickly but it hurts!!! has anyone experienced this before?? im not sure whether to call the dr or not!

  • I have not had that kind of pain (2 c-sections), but in case of excruciating pain, I would always call the doctor.

  • I have had two c-sections never had this..but it could be gas??? maybe it's not linked to the c-section? I would call the doc though if worried. Good luck!

  • I went through something like that, don't know what it was but it went away after some time! I probably should have called the dr but we had other complications... it's now been 2.5 and I haven't had those pains lately! Also, my MIL had a C section 25 years ago and still gets pains there so I figured it was normal.... idk though!
