Sheeba Vijesh

I am so sorry Chaitali Bhandarkar, I have no idea about full body pain... Have you talked to the doctor?

Gas pains can be excruciating! They should pass within a week, once your bowels are moving normally again (abdominal surgery causes them to "shut down" temporarily). In the meantime, taking anti-gas medication and a stool softener will help. So will walking.
You'll feel cramping for several weeks."Whether you delivered vaginally or by C-section, it takes six weeks for the uterus to contract to its normal size," Daneshmand says. Resting a heating pad or hot-water bottle on your belly (but not on the incision) can help; so can ibuprofen.
Healing takes time. "Your incision will heal within about three days. But it takes many months for inflamed nerve endings and other tissues to heal, which is why doctors dont recommend doing abdominal exercises for three months. The area around your incision may also be numb for six months or longer.
Its better you consult your doctor for the same dear.  take care
