Post CS numbness : If the numbness in & around the site of your c-section is not worsening and has improved, you should live it alone. After a year has passed you will most likely have forgotten about it. If the numbness is bothering you or getting worse, this is something to discuss with your gynecologist. Damage to small nerves is not uncommon with any abdominal surgery & most do resolve; it may just takes a while.
