    I got up the next morning and had a shower and was walking around after that.

    I went home within 48 hours.

    OMG yes. I didn't poo for a week, due to codeine i think, and it was horrendous when I did go. Please take movicol or something to prevent it.

    I was petrified of getting constipated so as soon as felt the slightest inkling that I had one in the chamber I shuffled out of bed and went to the toilet. I found holding a rolled up towel against my wound meant I felt more secure. So my advice is, the longer you leave it to poo the harder (literally) it gets.

    Tell them you're worried about constipation! They will give you something.

    That was really the worst afterwards for me. With my 3rd ceaser i told them straight away and they started giving me coloxyl, Bless those nurses!

    My csect was an urgent unplanned (no labour) at 630pm. I was up for a shower by 8am next morning after breakfast. My cathedar came out around 1230pm.

    The best advice I was given was to stand up properly the first time you get out of bed. It will feel horrible but your brain recognises that you cant hurt yourself!
    Ask for a physio to come show you bed transfers asap, much easier!
    Stay mobile with good posture, little walks around the ward do you wonders.

    I also only had the stockings. I think it depends how long you are lying down for.

    Re toileting. Drink heaps of water. Bottles of it!!! You can ask for a stool softener at hospital as well.

    2.5 weeks later and I feel nearly back to normal.

    Ohhh and take the drugs!!!!! My OB said keep going on them for 2 weeks. If you get sore its hard to get back on top of the pain so take them regularly x

    I just had my second csect

    First was emergency after failure to progress. 8pm at night. Was up and about by 1pm next day. Four nights in hospy and felt fine by end. Just needed panadol here and there.

    Second was planned. Day seven today and I'm feeling a bit more like myself but its much slower then last time.
