The wound in the stomach to penetrate the uterus due to cesarean section can leave the formation of scar tissue that is less elastic when compared to normal skin tissue. This condition can cause mothers who have had a cesarean section to feel various uncomfortable sensations, it can be limited to the area where the cesarean was cut, or it can spread to other abdominal areas. The discomfort that arises can be in the form of a lump sensation, pain, itching, and so on. If this complaint is mild and doesn't interfere with your daily activities, generally this condition is not dangerous.
However, if this feeling of blockage prevents you from moving, or causes disturbances in the process of bowel movements, vomiting, fertility problems, or other complaints, this complaint may arise due to an abnormality, which can be related to your previous cesarean section , but maybe not, for example:
Dyspepsia (increased stomach acid)
Obstructive ileus (intestinal obstruction)
Urinary tract infection or stones
Pelvic inflammation (inflammation of the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries)
Myalgia (muscle pain)
Psychosomatic disorders (psychological complaints that are aggravating or triggered by psychological pressure)
Intra-abdominal tumors, and so on
You can first compress the abdominal area that feels blocked with warm water while limiting activities that involve excessive abdominal muscle contraction, for example bending over, lifting heavy objects, and so on. If the complaints do not get better, you can see a doctor immediately.
In line with your complaint, constipation (constipation, difficulty defecating) in babies can also be a natural thing, for example, when your child is just learning to eat solid food. It could also be difficult to defecate due to the type of food consumed by the baby which is not high in fiber, the baby is lazy to drink, the baby consumes inappropriate milk, the baby experiences malabsorption or intolerance.
However, if due to constipation your baby becomes more fussy, cries a lot, or also vomits and has impaired growth, then you should also check with a doctor or pediatrician for the best treatment. As a first step, you can give breast milk and plain water to your child more often. Give baby solid foods with soft texture first, try to provide vegetables, fruit, and nuts. Also encourage your child to actively move and play so that their bowel movements become smoother. Avoid giving any laxatives to children younger than 2 years without a doctor's direct prescription.
Hope it helps ..
