  • With the pain meds I felt pretty good by the end of the first week then I stopped taking the meds and was sore for another 2 weeks. After that I was fine and back to my normal self. I've had 5 c-sections and only the 4th was a bad recovery (had a uterine infection so I was in constant burning pain for 3 months after she was born). The rest of them I was back to normal by 4 weeks.

  • i am getting ready to have my 4th c section and i haven't stopped having pains from the first. I hear some say it takes like 2- 7 yrs to completely heal. But that may be wrong.

  • Honestly, I never felt a lot of pain. I'd say within 2 weeks of having it, I felt like normal, and within a week my pain was very minor. Then again, I did take vicodin for the first week, so that probably helped a lot, lol.
