Is this normal? (csection)

As most of you know, I had an emergency csection on Thanksgiving Day. I am now 1 week out and I am still having this burning, tearing pain when I move. I did not have any deep pain where the muscles were cut into. This is all very superficial pain that feels like the incision is going to rip open on one side.

The incision itself looks great.

A stitch is a little to tight (or staple). I believe it's normal.

(((((Hugs)))) how are you besides that?

Yeah, it is normal. I was in pain for awhile after my c-section.

I dont know I just know I could barely walk for about a week it hurt so damn bad. I did tear the inside though (only to find out much later) and it still itches and hurts 8 - 9 years later when I menstrate.

I think as long as the incision looks good you should be fine but do be careful you dont lift or do anything that could cause internal tearing because it will continue to hurt forever!

Very normal. It should go away by two weeks or so though. Putting a small amount of pressure on the incision helps alleviate it too.

Yes and it could be like that for a while.

The Dr didn't expect my last baby to be as big as he was so the incision had to be stretched a lot while the baby was coming out.  OMG, a section of skin on the left side of my vag was burning for a good three months from being stretched so much.  Now and then I can feel the burn and it brings me to my knees.  It sucks but is very normal.
