Slight limp after episiotomy? I think?!

I know nothing about anatomy so tell me if I'm wrong, but I'm 10 weeks in from my ds's birth where I had a 2nd degree cut and I'm wondering if this is what could've caused my slight limp?

Is it still sore? If so then that might making you limp to avoid hurting. If you're asking if something got cut that's making you limp then no, highly highly unlikely. Babies coming down through the pelvis, forceps and things in your back (spinal or epidural, but very uncommon) can leave some residual weakness. It usually resolves but worth checking with your GP esp if you had a spinal or epidural and if you think it's something that's new or getting worse or have other symptoms. Hope all's well now.
