Hii .i got c sec 7months back. Now I am suffering from back pain if I carry my child or do any little heavy work. I am not able to carty him even 5 min. He weighs 8 kgs. Is thr any serious issue or thats ok.
I suggest you follow the below for your condition:
Take Mag Phos 6x - thrice daily for next 2 weeks and update.
Also do x-ray of the affected area.
Heat and Ice Packs. Heat and/or cold therapy helps relieve most types of low back pain by reducing inflammation. Often patients use ice, but some prefer heat. Both may be used alternately.
Back pain after delivery is commonly due to muscle strain resulting from:
1.Inadequate rest and sleep
2. Improper posture while breastfeeding the baby.
Your back pain is not normal. You need detailed evaluation and treatment accordingly. Consult a pain specialist in your city. For the time being, observe these lifestyle changes to get relief:
1. While breastfeeding, follow good ergonomics to avoid back strain. Sit in a straight back chair with back support and feet should rest on floor. Do not bend to feed the baby. Your spine should be straight and supported while breastfeeding.
2. For pain relief, you should take Paracetamol tablets if you are breastfeeding. If baby is not lactating you can take other anti inflammatory drugs like Ibuprofen.
3. Take warm fomentation over back for 10 mins 4 times a day. Apply analgesic creams like Volini over back
4. Do back extension and stretching exercises once pain is relieved. 5. Take Calcium supplement and diet rich in vitamin and nutrients.
If problem persists consult again.
