I have had 4 c-sections, and the pain your describing could be adhesions, however I think you need to your GP & then perhaps your OB/GYN......My problems with adhesions started because of the c-sections & my surgeon not explaining the consequences of repeated surgery in the same area. I have now had surgery along that same line seven times.
Some people can go for years before adhesions start causing problems, while others start to feel the pulling pain almost straight after surgery. Go get some help from your doctors asap.
love, hugs & cheers
