  • I still get pain on my scar...or in a certain part of my belly. I had my second CSection 5 years ago!! Although I think they screwed something up because I never had these issues with my 1st C-Section.

  • My last c-sec was 3 years ago and from time t time it will be come sore or achy. I have not been the best in the world about rebuilding those muscles so if I do any kind of strenuous work my muscles around there will get super sore. I am told I would benefit from working hard to get those muscles strengthened. It's not about weight it's about hte fact that they cut through muscle and any kind of strength they had was lost and had to be rebuilt and I personally did not do anything to help this process. But I should.

  • I had a c-section. My scar pained me for the first few weeks and after that, I always felt that it was there (for about 7 years). It didn't hurt but it was bothersome. Now, I don't feel anything and that general area is completely numb.

  • I've had two c-sections and a third "entry" through that scar to fix a ruptured ectopic pregnancy. I have to say that my experience was absolutely no pain after the initial healing was complete. The next time you see your gynecologist, you might mention that you still feel pain. It may be completely normal, but if it's the sign of something else, you'd hate to ignore it.

  • I had my fourth c-section 2 years and 2 months ago, and yeah, I still get some pains, but it's mostly muscular.

  • I had a c-section four years ago, and it still itches from time to time, but no pain maybe because i think that part is numb

  • The only time I feel it is when I am doing stomach crunches. I feel it pulling. I had a good dr. You cant even tell its there.
