If you had a c-section?

Does the scar still bother you? I can barely see mine after 2 years since my last one, my first being 4 years ago. My doctor said it looks VERY good.
It's still fuckin numb feeling and still kinda hurts if I touch. My pants rubbing it drives me literally insane and as funny as it sounds to think of the feelin is like nails on a chalk board for me.
Anyone else? And how long has it been?
I love my c-sections, but damn it this scar is still driving me crazy.

  • I had two c-sections (4 & 2 yrs ago). The incision is in almost the exact same spot or damn close to it.

    It is still 'slightly' numb. I have sensation there if I push on it but it is duller than the surrounding area. However the pain/soreness was gone completely pretty much within 2 months or so...I mean maybe if the baby kicked me it was sore longer than another part of my body; but not "painful" in general.

    And how high up is your incision/scar that your pants rubbing on it bothers you? Mine was done literally right at the hairline; my panties more than cover it; and that section of my pants is flat; sooo; I guess I'm confused...

    That feeling of needing to scratch an itch but can't because it's numb is maddning; but as someone mentioned is due to the nerves that were cut...but mine doesn't do that anymore.

  • I got mine less then a year ago, Jan 10th.
    It is still numb, scar doesn't bother me.. but i'm fat so maybe that has something to do with it.. when i touch it i'm still scared my insides will fall out and lately i've had pinching feelings.. odd..

  • Mine is 14 years old, and though the scar is barely visable and very small, I still have numb areas and from time to time it will start to itch like CRAZY!!!! I have no idea if there are reasons other than the nerves that were damaged, but it can drive you batty after awhile! I guess its just one more of those joys of

  • I had two c-sections for very dumb reasons and i dont feel like explaining it right now. But its not the scar that bothers me. it is the stretch marks and how NUMB my lower abs are. Its just stupid! its very very hard to do any lower ab work when you want to work out because it does not go back to being flat like it was before kids in 2003.

  • Mine is a little numb, but I rarely even notice it. My DD is 18 months.
