Surgeon Questions C-Section (Cesarean Birth)

How long does it typically take to recover from c-section?

I am due for a c-section delivery. This is also the first time I am undergoing a surgery and I am worried. How long does it take to recover from c-section?

I have seen women heal fast and some not so fast. The one thing I think I have always seen is after a c-section you can have labor pains. Your body will need to adjust and some times it is painful.
Most of the cases 2-4 weeks.
I generally have patients restrict their activity for 6 weeks.
Check with your OB
Depends on what you mean by recover. The general answer is 6 weeks.
