Hi Katy,

Congratulations on your new little one and I'm glad you found us.

I've had 3 C sections - 2 after labor and 1 scheduled. I haven't had my tubed tied, though. So, with each of my sections, I was starting to feel better around 3 weeks. When you say that you're having pain - do you mean that it's still uncomfortable? If so, that is fairly typical, but if you are feeling the serious bent over can't walk burning inside pain, I'd recommend that you see your doctor.

HTH - please feel free to post any other questions that you might have. I hope your recovery goes well..

What is the level of pain you are experiencing? I am on here for a similar reason as you. I just had my 3rd c-section on April 3rd and I had my tubes ties as well and I am still very tender in the abdominal area. It feels like I have been kicked abd punched in the uterine area. I don't remember feeling tender like this after either of my 2 other c-sections for this long. Maybe we can help each other, I know I haven't been in pain as long as you have, but still unnerving nonetheless. I keep thinking that nobody told me having my tubes tied would hurt worse than the c-section itself!
