  • Having that done is like having a c-section all over again. You should have had some one to be their with you for support. I had it done. But my kids where 2 and 7. My oldest helped me with my youngest.

  • I had a hyst that involved cutting through my c-section scar, plus he cut about 4 extra inches so he could take off extra skin. Luckily my dr kept me in the hospital for 3 days so that I wouldn't have to take care of my 18 month old at the time. I would suggest trying to semi lay down while having to nurse. Make sure that you put as many pillows around your abdomen to make it comfortable and to protect your stomach. My daughter was only 3 months old when I had to have my gallbladder out and I had to do the thing with the pillows. Also see if someone can come help with other things.
