Numbness up to belly button

Very normal... I'm beginning to get a little bit of feeling back, but I mostly feel pressure. I think that otherwise, it's a YMMV (your mileage may vary) kind of thing. For many, the numbness will go away but I work with a girl who had a wide abdominal incision (after a car accident) several years ago and she told me that she still has some numbness! Her numbness could have to do with the extensiveness of her injuries, though, and may be different from what we experience.

how to make belly numbness go away

Hi everyone,
I have belly numbness from my opp a week ago.My doctor said it was that he had cut my tummy open through layers of muscle skin and nerves. My chinese accupuncturist says no problem to get feeling back in that area and to heal any skar tissue,so......find a good chinese accupuncturist and ask.

thanks for posting this question. I am 6 days post op and was wondering the same thing. it's kind of creppy! I never heard any patients complain of this so I was a little surprised. I guess when I have patients in the future with TAH I will warn them about it. thanks again.

Numbness up to belly button

I am just about 4 months post op and still have some numbness. Over the past couple of weeks though I've noticed actually some more healing soreness (itchy/stingy) than I usually did. I was thinking because the numbness is wearing off. I to have heard it take a while to go away.

Numbness up to belly button

the numbness is weird. I had some up to my belly button and about to where my hair wasn't shaved. Some of my feeling is back to normal, but still have lots of numbness. The numbness doesn't really bother me, except sometimes when I'm getting dressed or pulling up my pants after going to the bathroom.

I have been glad that the numb level stops at the point where my hair was shaved.

I had my tah on July 30th and Im still numb too. And sometimes my incision burns and I cant stand to have clothes touch my stomach. Went for my annual check up Dec 4th and he said everything looked good and everything was normal. I hope it goes away soon.

I'm in the same boat. I had a c-section 17 years ago and the feeling never came back. I have numbness around my LSH incisions now and I've pretty much accepted it will always be that way.
