    Default C- Section

    Hi Four weeks ago I had my first baby via c-section. What I am wondering is... how long should I expect to be in discomfort for? I was getting better but I have been very busy and active last few days and I'm wondering if this is why I am feeling so sore and tender. Also is Bleeding still normal at this point? The pain is really getting me down...

    Hi OP, I had a C section 6 months ago. I still felt uncomfortable if I had a long day/night at 4 weeks, but don't remember being in any real pain. If I felt sore a panadol was enough to ease it. Everyone is different thought and I know other mums who took much longer to recover.

    Thanks Missie_Mack, Yes I meant post partum bleeding. No bleeding from wound, its healed nicely but it still hurts from time to time.

    Thanks Ilovehats, am taking nurofen, takes a while to kick in but it does help.
    Will be taking it easy for a few days
    thanks for both of your responses.

    My CS was about 6 months ago. At four weeks I was still tender but not in pain if that makes sense? So the sight was still tender to touch and some of the mucles around there were aching from where the clamps were but no sharp pains or anything. I think at that stage I started to get really itchy around the incision too - still do get itchy! My lochia had eased off at two weeks and then came back off and on for another two.

    If you're really sore and bleeding heavily (lochia) then I'd suggest a trip to the doctor to make sure that there is nothing wrong, no placenta remaining or anything like that.

    Try (easy to say hard to do) to take it easy if you do too much physical stuff even if it's just walking around the shops it really takes it out of you and you will feel it right in the belly for awhile!
