Throughout a usual C Section operation the stomach muscles don’t actually get affected and as such their recovery from c section is absolutely the same as for a vaginal birth.

You will usually feel a tightness or numbness around the area, but this is quite normal. You’ll also have less sensation over the scar because of the loss of feeling in the nerves of the skin. But don’t worry, this gets better over time and the muscles underneath won’t have been cut under a trouble free operation.

Following a program of pregnancy specific exercises during your recovery after c section will help to speed the recovery process up and return strength to the area.
