Hi there I had many probs after my c section the numbness is definately normal but you might want to speak to someone if your still in pain after 19 weeks my pain was due to an infection in my stomach although i dont no how likely that is after 19 weeks. The nerves only repair at a rate of something like a millimetre a week i think which is what causes the numbness. Hope you get it sorted.

I had an EMCS nearly 7 months ago.
My scar has healed really well, but it still hurts to wear a tight waistband, lean against kitchen counter etc. I think this is relatively normal, but if you are worried you could have a chat with your GP.

My HV told me that as CS are so common these days, we often forget that it is quite major surgery. It will take time to get over it fully, so be kind to yourself, take it easy if you can!

numbness definitely normal, and I was sore for AAGES leaning against things - it is much better now, and I am one year on from CS.

I would check it with doctor, remember it's seven or eight layers stitched up. A bit late in the day to advice, but it takes time to heal, and we often do too much too soon. I've had three sections now, and only with nr three did I slow down sufficiently for the healing to happen at a good rate. (19 wks also)
so yeah, have it checked with dr, and put your legs up when you can.
