    Just for me, as I said I only had digesic for my 2nd, which if you don't know is similar to forte but doesn't constipate. I wouldn't say I could walk fine, I kind of dragged myself along holding my tummy for support the first day or two. I stopped taking it a day after discharge (so day 3) and was doing household tasks. But not bc I wasn't in pain but bc I'm the sort of person I have to do stuff, I can't just sit there lol

    I haven't read the replies but I have had 1 natural birth and 3 c/s and would chose to have another c/s anyday. With my natural I walked like a crab for 6 weeks and can still feel where I had one tiny stitch. With my first 2 c/s I was up and walking and discharged from the hospital in under 40 hours and back to normal within one week..
    So I'm saying natural is alot harder to give birth plus recover.

    i came home and did everything like normal with no pain. maybe a little discomfort but no real pain.
    nowhere near as bad as the pain I've been in after all 3 of my vbs.

    With my cs I couldn't get out of bed unless I'd just had the endo and I took morphine for over a week. That burning feeling I had to at least week 4 and all I wanted to do was itch! I also had a reaction to the slow release endos and had to take something else. Arggh all horrible.
    (not to mention the actual cs and not being allowed to see the baby for 2 hours!!)
    But when I try to explain pain difference for mine I see it as, I needed a bucket load of morphine to walk after my cs, I took 2 panadols after my vb and I was shopping the next day.
    But every experience is different, I can't imagine a traumatic vb either, that area is so personal and I think would be hard to deal with emotionally.

    I had an emergency c-section after an induction and 9 hours active labour. Girls went into distress and HR completely dropped, I had to have it under a general.

    ABSOLUTELY know I missed out! My family met my babies before I did. I was (and still am) gutted.
    I had no spinal or epi and recovery was much more painful for me than labour was.

    I have never had a VB but I had a breeze of a c-section, hardly any morphine (made me itchy!) and no painkillers (make me sick and sleepy)

    I couldn't honestly say one was hardener or not (obviously) but I loved my c-section and hate feeling like I have to justify it to anyone.

    I made the best choice for me and my baby and that's all that counts in the end for me.

    That said I had all the dads at my work tut tutting me that I was having a c-section telling me it was the hard way. WTF? Yeah let me know when YOU have had both. I never explained there was a medical reason for it. They don't need to know.

    I had a block for the op and an epidural put in at the same time to be used for pain relief with a push button thing.

    As far as they can figure out, the epi dislodged when they were moving me from the table to the bed, so after the spinal block wore off, I had no pain relief and it was ouchy.

    I didn't realise that it wasn't meant to be ouchy and because I had him at 7pm, no one tried to move me until 9am the next morning when DH tried to help me up to go and see bub in the NICU and he took one look at me and was like "yeah I'm just going to buzz a nurse".

    So anyway, no pain relief for over 8 hours and no I couldn't move without significant discomfort.

    Once they sorted me out though, I was doing the ceasar shuffle in no time.

    I took the painkillers I was given in hospital, as I was advised to do so. But I didn't feel like I needed them when they were due, and I dropped them when I got home. I never had any burning pain or anything like that, and I could walk normally.

    I kept being told off by DH for jumping up off the bed to do things all the time. I had SPD in pregnancy, and felt so good in comparison to that!

    I still needed 6 weeks to recover with my vb though, not painful but uncomfortable, tmi but I couldn't pee the first week and abit without pouring warm water at the same time. And it took 3months to dtd comfortably and just 6 weeks after the cs. I also got a hm from pushing, that was pretty annoying.
