Anyones c-section scar still numb from years ago?

For all of my C-Section mommas this is a genuine question. My youngest is 8, and I’m still numb completely where they cut. Any of you still have this too? Also to add, I am NOT concerned, just curious.


Mine is still, my son is 6. It also itches sometimes, but like… inside it itches. When I try to scratch the itch, I can’t get it. I don’t know how to describe it, lol


Different scar entirely but
I had two knee replacements 4/5 years ago and scars still numb in places. Doctor told me sometimes the nerve endings just don’t knit back together
So nothing can be done
I can walk great, all that matters.

Nerve damage from scarring. I’ve had 3 C-sections I feel the same thing.

My c was 12 years ago and underwear still hurt my scar. Luckily I don’t mind being free as a bird and wouldn’t be caught wearing low rise anything.


Not as bad but like a solid year when mine finally got feeling back to it…i had awful jolting pain here and there till it was good to go. It still feels a tad numb but back and thankfully no more pain jolts. But I do have to support if I sneeze or it hurts. I’m 5 years out next month

3 c sections. Latest was 8years ago. Completely numb

I had an emergency csection… very fast… mine looks like a freaking snake, and 37 years later I’m still numb …


My son will only be 3 in September but I’m still numb and I had VBAC 11 months after he was born

Yes my daughter is almost 2 & it’s still numb on & around my scar

Yep! I had an emergency c-section with my 1st and a planned with my 2nd. I had to be cut open extra on one side of my scar as well as he was a chunky monkey! Still numb! I do my Clexane injections where it’s numb so I can’t feel it! :rofl:

I had 3. 2009, 2011, and 2013. My scar is numb

Yes. My child just turned 10 this past Sunday and it’s still this odd numb feeling. I assumed it was because I had repeat c-sections and maybe nerves were effected.


My eldest is 22yo and my youngest is 13yo and I’m still numb in a triangle from my bellybutton out to both ends of my first csection scar. I feel pain but nothing else, it causes a few problems.


Yes. I had C-sections nearly 9 years ago and nearly 7 years ago and I can’t feel a thing around a good chunk of my stomach where the incision is

Yep, 39 yrs… just the incision area. When they cut the nerve, the feeling never comes back.

Yep! My last c-section was 2001…still numb


I still have some numbness and irritation almost 31 yrs. later

When I had my second child 16 years ago my c section scar went numb for 5 years

Yeah it’s nerve damage. It will probably always be numb. I have some other scars from other surgeries and they are also numb. Had my son almost 11 years ago and it’s always been numb.

I had a c/s in 2021 and a liver transplant in 2009 and my whole abdomen is numb. I can’t feel a thing

Mine are almost 13 and and 10. I wouldn’t say numb exactly, but feels weird. And I still get random shooting pains sometimes

My c section was 7 years ago and yes mine is like partially numb. I can still feel it but it feels super weird to touch it. Hard to explain.

Mine was completely numb around the whole area. Had acupuncture to the area and now have full sensation except directly on the scar tissue.


7 layers were cut open. Nerves, muscle yeah it’s going to be numb

When they cut u the nerves there die. I’ve had 7 c-sections. Been numb for 20.5 years there.

Yeah, my kid is 19 and my scar area is still numb. It does a lot of trauma to the nerves in the area.

Mine itches. Along with my noroplant scar, and the scar on my back where a rod was put in and on my back where skin cancer was removed. Some back 20+years ago and they itch like crazy.
