View Full Version : 3rd C-section - still numb???
Just wanted to know if this is normal.
8 months ago I had my third c-section and parts of my lower abdomen (just above my scar) are still numb. I didn't have this after my first and second and just wondered if this is normal???
After all - I have been opened up three times along the same scar???:confused:
In my experience, I had numbness in between the scar right up to my belly button for four years. Honestly you could have run a razor sideways down my stomack and I wouldn't have felt it.
It was only after my second c/s, a classical incision, that I got feeling back.
I still have some numbness in a few patches, but other than that it is improving.
It does feel unnatural to not feel your body :no:
they have sliced through the nerves and so forth, and sometimes they take a long time to reconnect, sometimes they never do.
I have only had two cs and it is really really :hair: when I get an itch in my stomach, but when I scratch it is numb, so I can't scratch the damn itch.
I have that too. But it's only 11 weeks since my first c/s. Apparently it's nerve damage and will go away "eventually". Weird feeling, huh?
Yep, normal :yes:
Coming up to 18mths since my 3rd c-sec, and only now am I getting feeling around the scar. Every person is different, I wouldnt stress ;)
I've had quite a few ops on different parts of the body (and a c-section too) and I've had this numbnessafter every one. The numbess tends to fade (after several years) but it never feels the same - for me, ends up feeling more tingly somehow.
Totally normal, just one of those things that come with a C/S
Hey, I know this reply is soooo late but thanks ladies, it makes me feel better to know its normal.
