I'm 33, and I have had two c-sections, the first on 11/20/2009 and the second on 12/12/2011. After the first I continued to have a dulling and annoying pain in my entire lower abdomen, and it bothered me for two years, all the way up until I delived my second baby. I hoped that after having the surgery for my second that the pain might possibly go away. My second child is now over three years old and the pain is still so weird and troubling. The area still feels numb, but at the same time I can still feel sharper and constant pain. It feels like I have been punched in the lower stomach and like I have an awful bruise that just won't go away. The last time I went to my OBGY (last year) I asked once again, why my stomach was hurting, and she said I'm still healing. But I have talked to a lot of other women who have gone through c-sections and they are not experiencing what I am after so long. Also, within the last 6 months I've started to experience dull and chronic pain in my lower right back (closer to my tail bone). I used to think the occasional on and off pain had come from my epidural, my first c-section went smoothly, but I didn't get completely numbed for my second. The lower back sensation has become constant and it sometimes radiates all the way up to my shoulders. From my waist to my lower back, the whole area hurts constantly. I'm healthy otherwise, I love running, I manage our dental practice, I take care of our kiddos, I'm fixing to open a restaurant franchise and like many other women I'm just super busy. I try to just work through the pain and ignore, but lately it's getting really hard to ignore it. I can't take pain killers or NSAIDs because I am allergic to them (my heart starts to race and I can't catch my breath), so those are out of the question. What could this be?????
