My c-section was not for failure to progress...mine was for a footling breech baby and my hospital/doctor at the time did not allow breech vaginal deliveries. I did, though, go one to have a VBAC with my twins, and it was awesome.
What were the circumstances of your "failure to progress?" Were you induced?
I bet twins will be a whole different story! Of course I'd talk with your doctor about it, but I bet you'd be a great candidate for a VBAC. Good luck; I hope you have a much better birth experience this time around!

thanks we are at a differ. doc. the only high risk one who is known around here to vaginally deliver twins in the first place, he also delivers breech etc. all i know is i don't wanna die because im trying to have a vbac, so i just wanna find statistics on materal outcome of vbac with twins as well as baby outcome, i.e. are they gonna get stressed or stuck and have oxygen cut off? ugh. i hate big decisinos.
While I haven't had twins, I can tell you that there are docs out there like mine that are pro-VBAC no matter if it's a singleton or a multiple birth. It is do-able even if one or both of the twins are frank breech, you just have to have a doc that's confident in his/her skills.
Get in touch with your local ICAN network, get to know the docs that are pro-VBAC and get your maternity records from the hospital you delivered at so that the docs you interview can see those records. You have to do what you feel is right for both you and the babies ultimately.
