What did you do for your c-section scar?

I had an emergency c-section, that is vertical. One inch above my belly button, three inches below, in a horrible squiggly line. And because I didnt wear my post pregancy gurdle 24/7 (so says my doc, even though I did) My scar stretched out like a 1/2" wide stretch mark at certain spots. Looks tooootally nasty. But, no money to get a tummy tuck, so Im just stuck with it. Trying to love the new body.

So, anyone have similar stories? what did you guys do for your scars? Anyone get a tummy tuck?

  • I'm sorry you have to deal with this. I had and emergency C-section too but mine was horizontal so I can't offer any advice. I hope you find the info you're looking for! I consider my scar a badge of honor and courage so I love it!
