  • Go to the doc. There is a great possibility that you could have an infection..or there may be some sort of complication structurally in your uterus. Watch for a fever..sure sign of infection. You shouldnt need a refill on the pain meds unless something is should probably be able to take Tylenol or Motrin and get by at this point.

  • I would go to the ER, if your incision opened you need to be seen ASAP. Ive had 2 c-sections, almost having a 3rd. Its normal to have some pain obviously, but not to be opened!!! You can ask for more pain meds, with my first i was in so much pain i was on loratab for 4 months.

  • I would definitely call the doctor's office first thing in the morning.. tell them that the end of your incision split open a little, and you're having much more pain than last time. See what they say. I hope everything is alright!

  • After I had my C section, I had a lot of pain. I also developed an infection. Have you had a checkup with the doc that did the C section yet? He/she would probably write you another script for pain meds if you explain your situation.

  • Please go and see your doc.
    Or go to the ER.
    You need to have them check it out.
    You should not be reling on Pain Meds allone.
    Good Luck

  • Did they really send you home with that kind of medication? Wow. Back when I had mine some twenty years ago, we were never sent home with pain meds. Yikes! I would contact your Dr. if I were still in pain. By that time, I was out walking around with my baby.
