I remember in my both C-sections, I was asked to walk by my doctor and mid wives as soon as my body got back from its numb state due to spinal anesthesia. It was difficult and painful but this is what I thank for most. Walking is the key of healing. The more you walk, the faster your stitches heal. Keep it for 10 to 15 minutes at a time or till where your body allows but keep walking.
Soupy and Semi Solid Diet:
By the time you are operated to three days, you will be given soup and semi solid or easily digestive diet to avoid constipation hurting your stitches. But doing same diet for the rest of one month or more is actually very good in every manner!

The worst things you can load your body with are oily things.
