Ive had 2 C-sections. I was fine! Even though I am a total wimp. The C-sections werent that bad.
I got a tummy tuck 5 weeks ago - WAY more painful. But that was just me. I know some people, who are obviously tougher than I am, didnt think getting a tummy tuck was all that bad. While I felt like a semi had run over my middle, and I lived in fear of sneezing.
I think it depends on you and how high your pain tolerance is. Mine is not high.
