I'm mobile.... sorry for the typos!
It was near a week before I could wear my support band, but easily a few weeks before pushing things with my foot didn't hurt. I still try not to lift any more than 10-15 lbs. I remember the pain was awful and I really thought at 1st that I might have done something internally to my c/s scar. I mentioned it to my OB at my next appt. and she said that it just takes time and isn't likely to heal all the way until after birth because of the increased pressure in that region. Sorry momma!

I did find that tylenol and baths helped a lot at night before bed. I took tylenol during the day as well. And NO lifting.
