Re: C/S tips on recovering from a cesarean
The day after the Cesarean section, I was instructed by my OB to get up slowly and move around carefully while wearing my binder to support my painful tummy muscles. She ordered me not to lift up heavy objects greater than 15 pounds and told me that I should ask help from anyone in the family in terms of household chores while I was still recovering.
My OB also prescribed some medicines for stool softener and pain relief. Two months later, I got rid of my belly binder because the stitch is no longer painful.
