  • You had major abdominal surgery. Numerous (too many to cont) nerves were severed. They may never heal. It is normal, but unfortunate- some women also lose the ability to reach a climax after a c-section.

  • It's normal. You MAY get feeling back, but it doesn't always come back. My twins are almost 3, and I still don't have full feeling in my stomach; it's better than it was 3 months after their birth, but it's not completely normal.

  • My son is two and my scar still doesn't really have feeling and I can not stand any one (even me) touching it.

  • Yep..I'm still numb after my last one and that was 3 years ago. I hate it when it itches there and I cannot relieve the itch because of the numbness.
