I've had three c-sections. After my third son was born (8 lbs., 3oz.), I experienced extreme pain in one or both hips. It began near my femoral ligaments but now I experience it on the front of my leg. The pain is worse after I've been up and around most of the day (cleaning house, walking with my son on my hips) and can be so painful that it's hard to walk. Tylenol doesn't seem to help. I'm worried that it may be something serious.

Any ideas?

Was this experienced immediately after the c-section?
Do you find it hard to control the muscles?
Have you lost the feeling in your skin, too?

Hip Pain after c-section
No, not immediately. I don't think I have trouble controlling the muscles; however, when the pain is at its worst, I have trouble even lifting my leg up to take a step. I haven't lost feeling in the skin. The pain is most noticeably in the front of my hip/thigh area and gets less painful around toward my groin area.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
It could be due to over stretching of muscles.
Take advil and look for the response. If problem still persists then consult rheumatologist to evaluate you.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
