  • My incision didn't heal until like 5 weeks pp, but now almost 6 months pp, it still is very sensitive. I hope you do better than I have.

  • I was sore for some time afterwards. No heavy lifting. It took me a while to heal, due to DM.

  • It tooke me a bit more than a month and then I'd get weird sharp pains for about 4 years after.

  • I had three c sections, It takes a damn long time for the hurting to stop, for me it took about three to four weeks. Please what ever you do take it easy, always remember you went thru major sugery, let the family take care of you for a little while.
