welcome to XXXXXXX

As your problems have started after the CS surgery,

You need to get abdominal ultrasound done to look for any underlying collections ,or any infection.( especially sine you mention tender scar after nearly 10 weeks of surgery).
Did you have a follow up with your OB doctor after these complaints?

The other possibilities if the OB rules out any related conditions

1 stress gastritis - can happen after surgery

2 ureteric injuries during surgery also to be ruled out

So please consult your OBG doctor !
Good luck
God bless
