  • That hapened to me with my third baby---not a C-section--and it took aboutr a week to lose all the retained fluid. Just be patient.

  • Ahhhh mine did the same thing. It's lame but just keep them up as much as possible and it'll go away. One of the joys of having a c-section.

  • this happened after my first baby (no c-section). I drank a lot of water, flexed my feet while they were elevated and tried to walk a little bit every 30-60 minutes while I was awake. It hurt a lot but it went down after about a week.
