Does the numbness ever go away ?

Does the numbness ever go away ?

It's not totally numb it's like a pain numb with pins and needles . And it's not just the scar it's all the area surrounding including my intimate area ...
This is effecting my love life . I mean dh is very understanding but Its kinda making me depressed because I'm just numb for the most part .
Is anybody else like this after cs ?? And does it ever go away ? If so , how long ?

I had a c/s 3 1/2 years ago. The numbness used to really bother me, but I don't notice it as much anymore. It's still numb. I hope it gets better for you..

Re: Does the numbness ever go away ?

I had my section about 9 mos ago. I never had any numbness or pins & needles in my genital area. Most oif my numbness was in a band about 4 inches above my incision. The sensation has been slowly returning. It's not totally back, but I'd say maybe 75% now.

Sometimes the numb goes down into my legs also. And of course all over my stomach. Hope they didn't do something wrong. Doc appointment sept 4th

Definitely talk to your doc. I have numbness in a thin band along my scar, that's it at 5 years out. Never what you described, though I was originally numb in a larger area.

Whew, glad it's normal. I forgot to ask about it at my appointment. I have numbness around my scar and down a little. Also the hair they shaved away hasn't grown back in the same. It's hardly there. Anybody else notice that?

I agree talk to you doc, it sound like a nerve issue. I had numbness around the scar but its almost fully gone now if not totally I do not notice it.

My numbness was not as widespread as yours and I agree that that sounds like something that you need to talk to your doctor about.
My C-section was 12.5 years ago and the area around my scar still has less feeling. By now I am use to it.
