Hi. I am Dr.Shanthi. It usually takes 4 to 6 weeks for the stitches wound to heal completely.Mild pain will be present until the end of 6 weeks but since your pain is severe and also restricts minimal activities like walking, it is better to consult your physician.

Thanks for query,
After two weeks of cs you should not have severe pain as you described.
It is possible that you might have infection in the abdomen causing problem.
Consult your gynaec and get examined.
ok and bye.

generally one is able to walk after 4-7 days of LSCS,depending upon recovery.In some cases it may take time .Get your blood & urine tested to know the cause of slow recovery.Take good diets along with multivitamin
