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.
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.
