I had am emergancy c-section 5 months ago and have still not healed from the surgery

Hi alex, i am 2/3 weeks pregnant. I had am emergancy c-section 5months ago and have stil not healed from the surgery, esp internaly. I am finding that it is starting to become (slowly) more painful at the wound site. (Apart from seeing my doctor), what info can you give me risk factors ect. Thankyou, any info would be extremely helpful

Answer: Hi, It takes usually about 6 to 8 weeks for your wounds to heal after a caesarean section unless you had ongoing infections of the wound. It is very normal to feel aching and cramping of your uterus in early pregnancy and this may be what you are feeling. Talk to your doctor and have a check up to help you sort out what is happening as you have quite a while to go. Best wishes, Alex
