I've had 5 c-sections and each recovery was a little different. My last one was in July and I was back to my normal self after 2 weeks. I really didn't have a choice. We were moving and I had to finish packing. At 3 1/2 weeks I was helping load the moving containers.
I never had a choice to avoid stairs and things like that. My room was on the main floor and there was no bathroom. I either had to go upstairs or down to use the bathroom. My 4th was the hardest. I ended up with a uterine infection that left me in pain for 4 months. The 2nd was the easiest. I felt perfectly normal at 2 weeks and had almost no pain after the surgery. I just felt like I had done 1000 sit ups...I was super sore, but not in a lot of pain.

OP, you asked: "Anything I should be aware of? what's the advantage or disadvantage when having a csection?"
This is a very big question and should be researched outside of the Cafemom Answers section (if you aren't already).
I don't know if you are saying this is elective or not~
Because normal vaginal birth is safer for babies and mothers with healthy pregnancies, avoid unnecessary interventions means avoiding unnecessary risks.
And the risks with are significant, something to consider if unnecessary.
