Norasmama and Darcytrue I'll be thinking of you!
So- my mysterious pain, it is evidently nerve pain, which- I had suspected as a PT friend of mine had told me that nerve issues are often described by patients as a horrific burning pain.
Apparently, according to my OB, as the uterus and other organs move back into place, sometimes they can press on this certain nerve, part of the nerve splits and goes to the groin, and the other part down the front of the leg, right where my pain is. I had pain every single time I got up for more than 30 seconds from Sunday-Wednesday, and since then, it is a crap-shoot, sometimes the pain is there, sometimes it is not, I am thankful for at least that healing so far, it gives me hope!
I don't know how long it will take to go away completely, but- today was better than yesterday, so- hopefully soon! It is funny, I've told a bunch of friends and family all about this, and no one has ever heard of such a thing, yet, my OB knew right away when I described it what was going on. So- it must be common enough for OBs to diagnose it right away, but not common enough for most people to have heard of it.
Also- it sounds like it is simply a pregnancy recovery issue, and not really something c-section related. I mean, there can be nerve issues (don't we all know it!) from c-sections, but- what I am experiencing now with this awful pain, apparently just happens as the organs go back to their places.
It has forced me to take the recovery slowly, and given me tons of time to snuggle my LO, instead of getting up to clean, etc. Even my big kids are getting more mommy-time since I've been stuck to the couch
