In brief: Unusual

Without an exam, this is difficult to say why this is happening.
It is very unusual to have this sort of problem 16 months after surgery. Follow up with gynecologist

In brief: Post child birth

you had surgery and you had a child.
During pregnancy the pelvis and lower back go through changes and this may be related to child birth or pregnancy. It may not be related to c section. Try sleeping on your side with a pillow between your knees. Hope this helps
