I had my second c-section in November. My entire lower abdomen is still tender to touch not full out pain but very sensitive. Anyone else experience this and any ideas as to why?

hello!! i think its normal. for awhile, the area around my incision was numb. the first time i wore a pair of tight-ish jeans, i was in so much pain, i had to change midway through the day. and that was 4 monthes after my c section. if youre really concerned, call your doctor-at least then you know for sure if its normal. take care!!
