When can I resume normal activities after C-section?

Deep breathing and coughing

Deep breathing and coughing is a required excercise post general anaesthetic. Grab a pillow. Hold it as tight against your abdominal dressing as you possible can. Then do it. Big breath in. And huff cough. The splinting of your incision will help lessen both the pain and the fear of pulling everything apart.
