  • I was told it is scar tissue stretching...kind of burns in a dull ache way? Annoying as hell...take some tylenol and get some rest....

  • yeah mine had a dull pain every now and then but i never really thought about it at the time i just figured it was like that cuz it was stretching so i wouldn't worry about it too much.

  • Mine also had some stretching pain, but the good news is, when I had the second c-section the doctor fixed the incision from the first!!

  • My sister had two c-sections. She too had pain where the scar from the 1st was during her last pregnancy. Her doctor told her it was from the scar tissues stretching and pulling. The body is an amazing healing machine. Unfortunately though the healing tissue is not the same as the original. It does not have as much elasticity as the original skin. Therefore is not as stretchy.
