Can c section (14 weeks ago) cause PID? Had abdomen, back and hip pain since few weeks after section.

Had back&side pain (left), abdominal&hip pain. All since had c section 13 weeks ago, could it be related to pregnancy or recovering?
That is odd: Continued pain as you described is of some concern. You may have scar tissue. There may be some injury to the ureter (the tune from the kidney tintype bladder) which may explain the left-sided back pain though this is not that common in C-sections. Finally, it may be chronic back issues or positional problems even nerve stretching or injuries from the procedure itself though less likely. ...Read more

Lower left pain before bowel movement only happens during period. Feels like a sharp pulling pain. Scar tissue from c section?Endo?Ihave ovarian cysts
What could be the reason for a sharp stabbing pain near the incision 11 weeks post partum after a c section?
Probably adhesions: Post op incisional pain such as you are describing is pretty common. It is often difficult to know what exactly the pain is from or even where it is coming from. The tissue at the surgical site is less flexible than before surgery and tends to stretch and even tear a little bit during healing process which can take up to 6 months to complete. My guess is that this pain will resolve in a few days. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Continue Rehab: This can be normal, although it is rather uncommon, following hamstring harvest for acl reconstruction. The other issue may be related to your tibial tunnel (drill hole) that is very close to the hamstring harvest site. Make sure your surgeon is aware of this and continue your rehab.

Hi. i have been to a dr who said im experiencing round ligament pain. i told him it very painful. he said its in my head(fool).i think ive actually torn or sprain the ligament.the day of pain i spent hrs doing phyical work.how can i heal this?
Rest: The round ligament stretches from the top of the uterus to the side of the pelvis. It can become very painful in pregnancy, especially with much physical activity. Avoiding physical activity that makes the pain worse and applying heat in the area of pain are your best options for treatment. If the pain persists, ask your physician for other treatment options. ...Read more

There are other, abnormal, treatable causes of pain that your md may want to check. Therefore, any new or significant pain should be reported to your doc. For round lig pain, try to: stay off your feet, take tylenol (acetaminophen) in the usual doses, and rest on your left side. Hand in there, its quite normal. ...Read more
Round ligament: The "round ligaments" (one on each side ) support the uterus. When the uterus is enlarged (with pregnancy or tumors, for example) movement of the body will allow the stretching of one or both "round ligaments" and cause a pain in one side or both abdominally. It is not harmful, just annoying. ...Read more
13wks pg, having pretty severe round ligament pain (i think), I have a small frame, but it's outright painful. Dr. Appt in a wk, should I go sooner?
Probably not: The pains in early pregnancy can seem out of proportion to the size of the pregnancy (how could something so small cause so much!). Assuming that you've had an ultrasound showing the pregnancy is inside the uterus, and you have no bleeding, it's likely okay to wait for your appointment. Other causes of pain could be, your ovaries, your appendix, bowel issues, constipation. If it's severe, go in. ...Read more
Muscle stretching: The round ligament goes from the top of your uterus down to the low pelvic wall. The round ligament has a muscle in it that stretches when you walk, move or lie in one place too long. It can be very painful. Fortunately, it won't hurt you or hurt your baby. Support belts often help the stretching. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
