  • It is normal. When i had my c section i was the same way. When they close you all up all this air gets trapped inside and the only way to get it out is by passing it. It took me about 2 weeks to finally feel like i wasnt a hot air balloon and after3 i felt completely normal again. Just have patience and it will get better. Good luck!
