I think it depends not only on you as the individual but on the type and severity of the incision. I "needed" one for each of my four hospital births, usually felt fine by 4ish weeks but the 3rd was painful for 8 weeks or more. I really think the doctor was in a rush and did a sloppy job. And yeah, it may look like Bride of Frankenstein for a while yet, but it does get better!
