    Question pain around scar?

    I had a c-section about 14.5 weeks ago. I healed nicely and pain subsided around the 6 week mark.

    The last 2 days I've been feeling some pain around the scar. It's not unbearable pain, just uncomfortable. Hurts slightly to touch around the site.

    Is this normal or should I be concerned?

    I swear I'm not thread stalking you! I had a caesar 14 weeks ago today and just yesterday I noticed some tenderness but only when I touch it. Mine has healed really well but when I've been touching it today I have felt a couple of small lumps which I think must be scar tissue. Also noticed it a bit more where my clothes touch it whereas before I hadn't really noticed past the 6 week mark.

    Hi!

    I had my 2nd c-section 11 months ago and i find that when i touch around the wound it is still sensitive and gives me a funny feeling.

    I think it is normal but if it lasts a long time and you are worried it won't hurt to pop into your gp.

    Hope that helps!

    Hi I also find I get a funny feeling above the scar, dr said it's nerve damage and completely normal but can take a while. It's a strange numb sort if sensation.

    It's weird hey! But I think I'm used to it now or it's subsiding but doesn't bother me anymore

    I had mine 6 months ago, I was having that tingly pain and some other pain on one side, GP said its adhesions and to massage it. Just in a week the pain has decreased, Im not as tight and the little lump parts do actually seem to melt as explained in the video.

    I used a techniques like in these videos.
