  • I had that for years but now it's been 6 years and I've since had a VBAC. I don't feel anything now unless I literally try to pull on that area,which obviously I don't lol. For a long time I would get a sharp sensation that would feel like I was being ripped open all over again. I thought that would last forever. I think it just takes the insides a long time to heal.

  • If the skin gets pulled, it feels different than elsewhere, like pulling on a scar. There isn't a lot of sensation around the scar. But it doesn't pull all the time.

  • I don't think I quite understand what you mean but I don't think I've felt any kind of pulling. I had my son almost 19 months ago and I experienced all sorts of pain in my c-section area for a while after then. But now I don't feel much of nothing in that area, its actually kinda numb. But I'm sure that'll change when I have my second c-section in about 7 weeks!

  • I had 2 c-sections, my last one was a little over 8 years ago. I have absolutely no feeling in that area, it's completely dead

  • Never felt pulling but there was a sort of numbness and an irritation at the scar sight for a good 6 or 7 years afterwards.
