It's been 11 weeks now since my daughter was born, and I still have back pain from my c-section. I not only had the procedure done, but fell ill with a spinal headache (I wouldn't wish that on anyone!) and went through a blood patch procedure in the same location (which didn't work, but that's another story). My back felt bruised when I left the hospital, which I figured would be normal. The kicker is that 11 weeks later it feels exactly the same way - bruised and sore. I've had 2 follow ups with the OB and was told this was normal. My motion range is somewhat limited - if I move in a certain way I'll feel a hitch, and I've noticed that it's not very flexible so I've picked up on pilates which has helped some.
Has anyone else had this experience? Thanks for your help! :)
