Avoid sitting Cross legged. Avoid Squatting- Quadriceps Exercises- Lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core Strengthening Exercise- Straight Leg Raised With Toes Turned Outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day.

This pain is not because of caesarean section but due to recumbency or being bed ridden for a long time which leads to weakness and tightness in the muscles and when you get up /change posture/do weight bearing after  a long rest, it causes pain and stiffness.
Next Steps
Go to a physiotherapist.. IFT +Heating therapy +some strengthening exercises will be helpful for sure.
Health Tips
At home.. Do frequent knee movements.. Full range of motion exercises of knee. Avoid cold exposure.

In my opinion these kind of joint pains are very common after pregnancy u need not to worry 1st u need to check and work upon ur body deficiencies like calcium vitamin d vitamin b 12 iron as the levels of these decreased after pregnancy kindly go for a blood test or if u have checked recently kindly take supplement medications to up there levels...till den do not exs while u are having pain and if these levels are up to the mark den u need to go for physiotherapy for pain reduction followed by some spinal extension exs... get well soon take care
Health Tips
Do not exs in pain Do not check ur pain Do not lift heavy weights Do not sit or stand for long Do not sit on soft sofas

Did you have any complication with epidural during c section surgery? Occasionally that can cause injury to a nerve and cause pain in leg. It can also be due to stiffness or weakness. Try doing Hamstring and Quadriceps stretching exercises, ice packs and if pain improves start strengthening. Otherwise consult an ortho Physiotherapist.
