C-section people & back pain
I'm now 16 months after my last C-section. I had two within 13 months, so two spinals pretty close together.
Does anyone else still get terrible pain in their back? I'm fine during the day and if I keep moving, however when I get into bed, it takes me ages to get comfy, and then during the night I find I'm tossing and turning all the time from one side to the other as I get pains in my hips and lower back. By about 5am, I'm in agony and by the time I come to get up I can hardly walk, but after an hour or so of being up and about I'm fine.
I thought it was my mattress, so we bought a memory foam topper to see if that helps but tbh, it's not done anything much. I've changed the heights of my pillows, and gone from 3 to 2 pillows which helped a little bit initially, but now the pain is back.
Am I destined to be like this forever? It was never like this before I had the children and C-sections. Is it possible that some permanent damage is done by putting spinals in?
