I had a lot of numbness - to the point that I didn't even attempt to get off the yellow surgical goo for a long time because it felt so weird to touch my abdomen! The numbness came in handy when I got pregnant again and started lovenox injections. =)

It's been 9 months since the C-section and most of the feeling is back, but the area closest to the scar is still numb.

I was numb too. It's gone now but it took a long time for it to go away completely. I had some numbness even up to a year later.

Wow, thanks. I've never heard of anything like that. But now I know I probably shouldn't worry ;]

Some of the numbness should go away as the superficial nerves that were cut during your surgery grow back. I had some numbness/extreme tenderness in the skin immediately above my incision after my first C-section and then, like Crystal, it all went away with my second!

Mine is permanent also but this is interesting... after my 2nd c-section SOME of the feeling came back.

Some of us have permanent numb spots from the c-section. Mine's about a 2-inch diameter region.
