I had emergency c sec too and allergic to all painkillers. The first week was a pain in the a**... but gynae and nurses encouraged me to walk more while I was in the hospital as walk helps to reduce the pain and make it easier to recover. True enough, getting up from bed took my half day but once I started walking, the pain kinda become more bearable. I think it’s the beginning of every action change that will cause the pain to be unbearable (ie: from sitting to standing, standing to first step of walking).. when you need to cough/sneeze, press (using palm) on your wound so that it will hold it down and not make it more painful - my hubby helped me pressed on my wound while I cough my phlegm out. If not I probably would have enough strength to press and cough.
