Anyone have this? I'm recovering slowly but well 12 weeks post c-section. Just curious to see if anyone else has any numbness around their incision sites. My numbness is actually just above and around on the left side.

I still have some numbness around my incision site from my c-sec almost 4 years ago. I was told this is pretty normal.

Thank you. I was wondering if it was ever going to come back - I'm assuming it's from nerves severed or something. Glad to have that feedback.

I still have this 8 months after my second. It sometimes lasts forever, unfortunately. Not always, but sometimes. Your nerves basically have to grow back together first, then they start working-was what I was told.

Due with number 5 in August. We do all that crunchy stuff.

Yeah, but at least it doesn't hurt, eh? Well, at least I can't feel my adhesions like I did at first.. I don't know about anyone else.

Nope I don't feel much of anything anymore - just a little tenderness.

I didn't have this after my first c/b. BUt after my second I'm 13 months post c/b and I'm still numb the entire length of my incision and about 2 inches or more on each side. But it will still hurt. Like if fabric rubs the wrong way I can feel that but if you pinch it I can't. It is really weird and really annoying.

I'm 19 months post-cesarean and my incision site is still numb all over. Once in a while, DD will accidentally kick it or bump into it and, well, OUCH!!!!!!

Ooooh...I hated that feeling...the numbness. When I used to bend over for about a good year after my C, My entire guts would go up under my ribcage. Scared the livin; daylights out of me. At least that's what if felt like. Then it would get "stuck" in that position for a minute...just long enough to make me feel like I was going to DIE!! It was just like a huge bump under there. I know that it was from the C, but don't know what the heck it was...Does anyone else know what I am talking about?? Anyone here get that??
