    What causes pain after a c-section?

    I had the mirena coil after my 4th c-section last march. It was my third emergency one, as they thought my scar was going to rupture because I had bad stomach pains in my lower belly.  Since the operation I never felt right, but when the coil went in, it got a bit worse, so I gave it time. Yet after 12 months I had it taken out, and when it came out, they said it might have stuck to my scar a little because it really hurt! Since then it has gotten so bad that I have almost called an ambulance on numerous occasions because I was having severe stomach pains.

     

    The doctors just keep doing swabs, but they come back normal every time. It is really sore to the touch, so much so I was in tears when I last went for an examination. I dont want to go back. The pain goes all down my left side, just above my belly button, and then along a small "line" type area just above my belly button. I have had ALOT of constipation; it's like it has gone to sleep on me! I know that sounds silly, but it's true. I have had a lot of headaches, too, but thought that was a side effect of the implant. Also I have been really sweating a lot and really tired, which is not like me at all, and I haven't been bleeding. I have a good diet, and I'm only 23.
