I'm 18 days post c section and still really struggling. I can get around and lift my baby while wearing the abdominal binder (although it's very uncomfortable to wear when sitting) but I'm still in a good bit of pain when I'm not wearing it. I have a hard, tender lump above my incision that makes my tummy bulge out (my tummy was flat pre pregnancy). I know I need to give it time but I'm feeling so impatient to feel normal again. Any recovery tips? How was your recovery? This was my first c section (emcs after pushing for almost five hours).
