What should I expect in terms of physical pain after the Caesarean?

Getting into the shower was hard for the first few days and laughing was so painful I thought I had split the stitches inside! I called the doctor screaming in pain after getting a fit of the giggles! Nathalie, Brighton

In terms of physical movement, I clearly remember that standing up was my biggest problem.
I was doubled over all the time, shuffling about like an old lady – because I was so worried about the wound opening up! Anonymous, Brighton
