How long does a post C-section hurt?

Postby melissam » Sat Feb 05, 2005 07:18 am

I was just curious. I am so ready for it not to hurt any more. It isn't all that bad, but sometimes when I stand from a sitting position it gives me a real zinger. I also don't want this constant reminder any more. I had a classic c-section. There were two cuts. The uterine cut was vertical while the superficial or cut on the outside was horizontal. The uterine cut still hurts the most. It is fairly tender and hurts when my little girl gives me is right at her head level. She leans her head into my tummy to give me hugs.

I had a vaginal delivery with my first so this is a whole new experience to me.

Also, how long until you received Aunt Flow? I know it has only been 5 weeks and I need to give it time, I just wanted to know what it was like for some you others.

Thanks for your help.
