Customer Question
I had a c-section...

I had a c-section 10/18/16, and I've never really had any discomfort with it other than the initial healing. But, now every time the muscles in that area tighten it feels like it's pulling the scar and something on the inside. Is this normal or should I have it checked out?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

I haven't been to the doctor about it, it just started last night. I'm on no medication.

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Nothing, none that I know of

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not that I could think of.

Hello. My name is***** and I just read through your question.

The sensation you are describing is normal and, in fact, common. it could take up to five years before that feeling resolves. It is not a reason to run to your doctor. However, it is worth a mention at your next regularly scheduled visit. Otherwise, nothing to worry about.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
