for those who have had 2 or more caesareans, do they make a new incision, or just cut into your old scar?

also, is the healing time more difficult the second go around, or about the same?

TIA!

This will be my second. But my OB did say he makes a new cut and will remove my old one.

It may sound silly but I feel like I will miss my older scar. I am attatched to it lol. Although I can barely even see it it reminds me of my son's birth.

aww, now thats sweet. not silly.

removing the old one...sounds a bit painful. like will they be removing the skin? i hope my doctor goes over this. i havent decided if i'll be taking this route, but its looking like i have no choice and i'm a bit worried about how long it'll take to recover. with my first i was walking around fine. stairs sucked..but this time i'll have a newborn and a 5 year old to tend to and my hubby won't be taking time off work. unless, he need to. i'm wondering if i'm going to regret that decision. its getting crunch time and i'm getting nervous!

I will have to ask him to go into detail now. I'm curious exactly what he meant.

It's been 7 years since my last one. So I don't recall how long it was to heal. I'm worried about having to jump right back into getting my boys to and from school. I think I will be okay with around the house stuff since they can do a lot themselves.

I had that question too, my doctor said they go through the same scar as the first time. I'm not sure about healing time, from feeling and looking at the first c-section scar she said there was hardly any scar tissue and that it healed well so this c-section should go smoothly. Ask your doctor

Oh no! I was hoping to get two scars, like right next to each other. I love my "battle scar" from Aiden.... I need to talk with my OB about this. I don't want my old one to be removed!

This will be my 4th C-section and they will just use the same scar.. But my previous 3 have been really good, so the midwife / ob has said...whatever that means...lol

I have had 3 and they are all almost on top of each other. Healing wise I found I was still up and about pretty fast, but with each new incision it did take a little longer to heal and I did have more issues. (i.e. with #1 1/12/07 I had no issues, #2 2/14/08 I ended up with some yeast and it seemed to bother me more even after fully healing being itchy at times and #3 3/14/10 also yeast and severe itching, especially on hot days. I had a lot of redness and my stretch marks within the area would often swell, itch and irritate me). I am hoping to VBA3C this time around.
