I've had two sections. The first time, the weird numbness took about 10 months to get better, and the occasional itchiness or mild soreness lasted about 7 months. This time around, the pain only last about a month, but the weird numbness still hasn't gotten any better and I'm almost 2 years postpartum.
And I have a terrible pooch. That's a side effect of twins as much as the section, though.
Give it time. If you're sore, it's too early for any major abdominal exercise.
