Dear moms, for those of you who’ve had a C-section, is it normal for the scar to feel lumpy like on this one side. My surgery was on 29 May, and I’m having difficulties sleeping (on my back seems to be the only position comfy enough). Any experiences with either. Thanks!

I had an emergency C-section and my scar also felt like that. Sometimes it was itchy as well, but it will go back to normal after some time. Just make sure you clean it and then dry it so there’s no moisture there.

My scar was lumpy after having the C-section and has now sorted itself out and is less lumpy. I had mine two years ago and it is pretty smooth now.
