Talk to your DR.: Healing from a Cesarean section can take up to 6 months or longer depending on the type of incision and any complications. Pain is a common side effect of C-section, sometimes lasting years. The two main causes of post c-section pain are nerve pain and muscle pain. Nerve pain will go away after healing fully, Muscle pain can be treated by physical therapy, steroid injection, TENS stimulation.

Pain S/P C section: It the pain is so severe that she is screaming 2 month later - I do recommend that she consult with her doctor. In traditional Chinese medicine, we have found that treating C -section scar with acupuncture can often improve significant back pain.
