Brief Answer:
Due to scar tissue.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The pulling up of the uterus after a c-section is due to scarring in the area. The scar tissue has attached the uterus to the anterior abdominal wall. It can cause pain due to abnormal pulling up of the uterus. The only way to get rid of this problem is by surgical removal of adhesions. In case the pain is severe and persistent then do consider going for the surgery.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
