For me there was gas pain from no bowel movements for several days. Intense pain at suture site, difficulty walking for a few weeks.

It was an emergency C-section. Afterwards, there was difficulty standing and walking, unimaginable pain- wow, it was bad. Severe gas pain- I've never imagined I would ever pray for a good fart or poop. Everyday, I would clean the area with a warm, wet washcloth.The strips were removed about 3 weeks later. Holding the baby made it all worth it.

Kathleen,

I have two sons and I didn't dilate with either...my 1st was an emergency C-section that left me in the hospital for a total of 4 days...the recovery was difficult because I was in bed the entire time...the nurse didn't allow me to get up until the 4th day...I was given bed baths...and had a urinary catheter...but with my 2nd...I had a totally different experience...I asked the doctor when he was going to cut me...and he said that he was getting ready to take him out...lol...I was able to get out of bed and they took my urinary cathether out the next day...I was discharged on my 3rd day...my advice is to not overdue it...walk...move around...but not too much at one time...take lots of breaks...sit and rest...your strength will diminish quickly if you take on too much...even if it isn't an emergency C-section...recovery will be easier if you do what the doctor tells you...it will also be great if someone is home with you and your new baby for at least the first week.
