Stomach pain, gas, nausea, chills, vomiting, no periods, back pain after C-section. Is this common?

I had a c-section 3 months ago and since then i have been having sharp stomach pains from the top to the bottom, extremely gassy, starving feeling but nauseous at the same time, chills, and vomitting. Not to mention i have not gotten my menstrual back. My entire back hurts all the time and my left thigh feels numb at times. Is this common from such a surgery or could this be something else?

Thanks for the query.
Some amount of discomfort in the abdomen is common after cesarean section.
But according to your description there is possibility of pelvic inflammatory disease, so better to rule out this.
After cesarean section it will take sometime for regularization of the periods.
And if you breastfeeding the baby it may delay up to 6 months also.
Now you consult gynecologist and undergo physical examination, by this the possibility of pelvic inflammatory disease can be rule out and also possibility of pregnancy can be excluded.
Take care.
