Anyone with a c-section...

ever experience a sharp pain on the left side of the your incision just above you hib bone. It comes and goes but is really painful and last for approx. 1 minute. It comes at different times, including when I'm sleeping so I know that it has nothing to do with "over-doing it".

It could be scar tissue or adhesions.

It could be scar tissue or when the suture knot is. Depending on what type of suture they used to close some of that stuff is thick like fishing line.

I get the odd stabbing pain and did with my other csection too. However, I found I got the same "stitches" pain feeling even after vaginal births so I think it's everything just going back to normal (nerves/ligaments/etc.) Everything down there goes back to how it was in just 6 weeks time so there's a lot of movement going on!
