Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for the query

There is no problem in walking or climbing stairs after C section.
A Caesarean section is a major abdominal surgery. If you've recently had a C-section, your body will need several weeks to heal. Your doctor may tell you not to use the stairs for a week or more following the procedure.
If the scar is healed completely and if you have any pain you can start climbing slowly.

Avoid exercise and lifting heavy weight for 1 month.

Take care
Regards
Dr Priyanka
