    Default C-Section pain

    I had an emergency c-section 3months ago,the pain started to ease off after about 6weeks but now it's back! It's worse than before,there's no pain in my lady bits but it's the lower abdomen,it's so uncomfortable,I get a tingly sensation and I'm sure I can feel a lump on the lower right side,sex is painful and there's been a bit of blood,anyone experienced anything similar? Don't want to go doctors if this is 'normal' pain

    I didn't have anything like this at all after my c-section.
    The scar was a kind of weird numb feeling for ages but that went away, no pain, no bleeding during sex.

    I would see your OB or GP xx

    I would go to the hospital tomorrow If I were you, that sounds pretty serious. It could be retained products. It just happened to my sister in law. I had a c sec 6 months ago and I've been pain free since a few weeks post partum.. the scar is healed and not numb but I've heard that's common.

    Numbness is really common. But a lump, pain during sex and bleeding is not. Head straight to your GP to get it checked out.

    Default C-Section pain

    Like the other ladies, my incision was numb and still is in parts (4 years later). As for recovery, I was pain free after a week and felt back to normal after 2. Did you have bub private? If so, call your OB otherwise head to your GP or hospital to be checked over.

    I've got weird numb bits on the skin but no pain underneath. def no suspicious bleeding or unusual pain.

    when I press on my abdomen around the incision it still feels a bit weird...like not sore or painful but like I can tell I've been cut/had something done down there. I'm now 5 months out from an emergency cs.

    id be seeing my gp or ob as others have suggested. bleeding definitely sounds not normal and you should get this checked out.

    I would go today if you can. Or take baby to the ER with you. It's better to be safe than sorry, you know? If it does turn out to be retained product, you don't want to sit on your hands and wait and mess with your future fertility.
    I had a procedure done when I was 21 and the pain started a few weeks afterwards. The pain was intense and I ended up contracting bacteria from the hospital and it turned into an infection. I waited on it for a week before I gave in and went to the ER. I was told if I waited any longer it may have affected my fertility- not something we want to play with.
