Agree, talk to doc. I had a small, two inch burn scar I got from an ironing accident that for YEARS burnt like crazy if it touched metal. It was so weird and no one could explain it to me, and eventually the scar faded away. Scars are weird. I just had a C-section a month ago and have been pretty much ok after the initial pain faded, but definitely still healing.

I can relate. I have had 3 C-sections. My last one was 30 years ago. I know it sounds incredible, but my incision still hurts at times. Not only does it hurt, but it itches like crazy. Almost like it did 30 years ago, when it was starting to heal.
I can still exercise, and I jump and stretch, etc, but I do feel a "tug" at the site when I do those things. It is VERY annoying! Like most people, I always say this cannot be happening! This is a 30 year old incision! But, I am living proof that it can happen. It's happening to me!

Agree with getting checked out, you may have a small hernia under the scar that was missed.. Large scars can sometimes fail to heal inside correctly.

It would be wise for you to follow up with your doctor just to eliminate the possibility of there being something more serious going on in there. Since pain can be referred from other areas (courtesy of the nerves), there could be any number of things causing the pain and it is always best to err on the side of caution. Abdominal pain 9 years post-cesarean is not a normal occurrence and needs to be evaluated.

I've tried so much stuff to lose weight, but for me, I HAVE to exercise. For many years the only exercise I've done is riding my bike, walking etc. But years ago I was very into taekwondo. I had my son when I was 46 by c-section. I recently joined a taekwondo class and I think I tried to do everything too fast, even though they told me to only do what I could (I'm 55). I was very sore, but I expected that, from the pushups and situps. I had great difficulty doing even one sit up, and my pushups I had to do on my knees. So just a lot of sore muscles. I continued working out during the week between classes (wall pushups, situps with an elastic band). Then one night I turned over in bed, and felt something in one side of my c-section incision, a very sharp pain. After that, I felt pain or burning in the incision if I tried to do a sit up, push up, or plank position. No pain to press on the area, or do anything else, even standing leg lifts. My c-section was over 9 years ago! Could I be tearing adhesions or something? I cannot even begin to do a situp or push up right now.
