Pain In The Thighs After Caesarean Section?
Good night, I just gave birth by caesarean section 27 days ago. But since 3 days ago there was pain in the hip bone down precisely in the thigh, what was the cause? Then how to overcome the pain? The pain makes me unable to hold back tears, it hurts so much. I tried to wear a belt (I used during the third trimester of pregnancy) on the hips, the pain was a little less, but I’m afraid the pain can not disappear, please help me, thank you.

The complaint of pain in the hip or thigh area is a complaint that is often encountered or experienced by pregnant women and after childbirth. These complaints are complaints that arise along with increasing gestational age, increasing weight of pregnant women, activities or work carried out during pregnancy and lack of sports and relaxation activities. Thus, complaints of pain in the hip or thigh area may be caused by stiffness of the spinal muscles that support your body during pregnancy and after delivery. If this muscle stiffness is not restored after labor or during a previous pregnancy, strain training and relaxation of your muscles are not attempted, then this condition triggers complaints of pain and prolonged muscle tension. Especially after you give birth, you are still active, holding your baby, doing work or drinking less water.
Some other conditions can also aggravate this complaint, such as:
1. lack of sleep
2. often up and down stairs
3. often carry heavy loads or luggage
5. Other medical disorders, such as inflammation of the muscles, nerve compression, spinal deformities, arthritis
You should begin to independently identify the possible triggers for this complaint, especially after delivery. So you can find out the risk factors that increase this complaint. Next you begin to control and reduce these risk factors so that your body can start adjusting your activity load and your body load. Some things you can also try, like:
1. keep using the belt during the recovery period to help support your muscular strength, while you work on exercise and stretch
2. avoid sleeping late
3. do exercise and stretch for your muscles
4. avoid ringing your spinal joints to avoid injury
5. enough water
6. give warm water compresses with hot temperatures that can get into your muscles. Do it every day three times or four times for 30 minutes. If you have an electric heating pad, you can use this tool to help with recovery
7. direct examination and treatment by a doctor
If within 7 or 14 days after you have tried all of the above recovery efforts, but this complaint is still disturbing, or at this time you are very then you should consult directly with your neurologist or obstetrician, so that the doctor can carry out a direct examination and plan a supplementary examination if is required. The results of the examination will be a reference for your care and treatment. Thus, supervision and care can be given directly by your doctor to achieve recovery and comfort after giving birth.
