Hopefully not: Nerves were damaged, severed, thru the surgical incision during your c-section. It may resolve overtime but occasionally patients experience some numbness or sensation on a permanent basis. Give it time, you may see gradual improvement over the next few months. Good luck.

Nurse : Your nurse will start massaging the top of the uterine which is called the fundus immediately after surgery-- usually in the recovery room. This will be fine periodically in the first 24 hrs after delivery
