What do you mean by "in commission"? Sex? 5-6 weeks for that, and go S-L-O-W.

As for feeling back to yourself...it took me probably a whole year to feel totally healed after each of my 3 c-secs.

It's very common to have that shooting pain on the right side. That's where the surgical retractors go during the surgery, and most surgeons are right-handed and stand on that side, so that side gets a lot of stretching and manipulation of the wound, so therefore a lot of nerve damage. I still get occasional shooting/sharp pains in the right side of my scars, even years later.

Congrats on your new baby!
