I'm having a RCS next month, and although I've gone through this before, it's been a few year and want to see how quickly others do certain things.
Last time, although it wasn't a true emergency, I had a csection earlier than planned due to pre-e. I had my twins by 6pm, and after that, it's all a blur. I think it took about 45 minutes to close me up and move me to recovery.
I believe I was in recovery for about 2 hours.
Then, I believe that I started being able to wiggle ONE toe maybe 3.5 hours or so later? And then slowly from there, I slowly regained feeling.
I hate being numb though, so can you all tell me how long it took for you to regain your feeling back? From being able to first feel something to full recovery?
Since I had a late csection, I didn't attempt walking until the next day. How quickly were you able to walk? When did you shower? And did you shower every day until you went home? I only remember showering once! Maybe twice, but it's all a blur now!
Plus, am I the only one who dreads the spinal? Even though its not PAINFUL, I am so scared of it!!!
Thanks for replying!
