    Its been over 6 months since my csection, and I still get a lot of pulling and pain in my scar. Also the whole are above it, up to about an inch below my belly button is numb still. Is this normal? I tried calling my OB but her office line is busy when I call. I guess I could go to her office but its kinda a pain if its totally normal. Have any of you ladies experienced this months later? Thanks!

    I know the numbness is normal. My DH has a big scar on his arm from surgery and it is still numb in areas 10-12 years later.

    Thanks girls. I've never had a major surgery like this before, so I had no idea what might be normal or not.
