Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
After cesarean section, recovery usually lasts 2 to 8 weeks. During this recovery period, inflammation of the surgical scar (usually characterized by pain, swelling, or wateriness), dizziness, headache, weakness, frequent tingling, etc. are usually normal and harmless complaints.
Pain in the back and feet that you experience can be a natural thing to occur as a residual from the anesthesia that was used previously during your operation. Alternatively, this pain may appear as part of premenstrual syndrome, which is a group of symptoms that precede the menstrual cycle. However, if this pain appears with very great intensity, especially it occurs for a long time after cesarean section, you should consult your doctor immediately. It is feared that this condition occurs due to other causes that require special treatment, such as pinched nerves, urinary tract infections, urinary tract stones, myomas, ovarian cysts, rheumatoid arthritis, other viral or bacterial infections, and so on. By examining you in person, usually the doctor can give you the best treatment, including if further tests are needed, for example blood tests, urine tests, X-rays, ultrasound, and so on. If necessary, the doctor may also refer you to the right specialist, for example a neurologist or gynecologist.
In the meantime, we recommend that you first relieve the pain that appears by using a warm compress. You can also take paracetamol as an initial treatment. This drug is relatively safe for consumption by mothers who are breastfeeding. In order for the pain to improve, you should also get plenty of rest, breastfeed your baby in a position that is comfortable (don't bend or tilt to one side for a long time), exercise regularly, and drink and eat enough every day. It is not recommended to massage or over-massage the sore waist and leg area, especially by people who do not fully understand the anatomy and physiology of the human body.
Hope it helps ..
