I know we just had a thread about this, but when you ladies mentioned having pain around your c-section scars, what exactly were you experiencing? Yesterday, the area around my scar very suddenly became super sensitive. It didn't hurt per se, but it was incredibly sensitive. I was so uncomfortable in my belly band/jeans combo. Today, when I wore a pair of (ultra-ugly!) maternity jeans that only had the little support panel (not the full belly panel), they were causing some irritation too. Now, I have on a pair of yoga pants and I've hiked them up Steve Urkell-style and because the waistline is so high up, I'm not feeling any pain. The "pain" is totally on the outside of my belly -- no internal issues.

Is this what you've been feeling?

Last week was a definite burning, tearing pain for me. But occasionally I get the same kind of numb, kind of hypersensitive uncomfortable-but-not-quite-painful skin sensation you're talking about when clothing presses against it. I would imagine that's nerve pain in the skin.

I get bouts where it feels like a burning/tearing sensation but mostly it gets what I'd describe as feeling tender/numb when I have something like a waistband rubbing/pushing against it. It feels similar to what I experienced for quite a few months after I originally had the c-section after the initial "OH WOW THIS HURTS!" went away.

I had to go out and buy myself a pack of granny panties the other day because of course my underwear waistband hit exactly where it would bother me.

I'm getting ready to buy some too if this continues. I'm wearing a new pair of maternity jeans with the full panel and it feels better. I guess I'm done with the belly band for now!

Thanks ladies for the replies!
