So of course it's been nearly 13 months since I had my csection. I expect the "numb shelf" will never go away completely (at least from what I've heard from moms who had a csection many years ago) But I've noticed when I sneeze I still have to brace myself and kind of bend forward to prevent pain. It's not on the outside, it's more located where the incision would be on my uterus I guess. Today I had a "surprise sneeze" so I didn't brace myself and it was quite painful. TMI but I'm also on my period so i do wonder if that could have some affect. Any other csection mommas still find sneezing (or anything else) to cause pain or discomfort similar to post-surgery (but on a much less painful scale of course)?
