  • Yes, I am full of adhesions from all the c-sections I have. Every now and then I get a pulling and tugging sensation along the scar line and internally. I also have incisional hernias from the c-secctions. During my last c-section it was found that one was starting to wrap itself around my fallopian tube. There's not much that can be done for them since it's scar tissue. To cut into scar tissue is only going to make more scar tissue. I manage my symptoms by knowing my limitations. One day I want to have surgery to repair the hernias, but I am scared of surgery.

  • I did after my first one. My bladder had adhered to my uterus. I didn't realize it until I was pregnant with my son later that year. Every time my bladder got remotely full I would have stabbing pains in it. It sucked since I was constantly having to pee.
    But they were able to fix it during his c-section and I haven't had any problems since. That was 9 years ago. And I just had my 5th c-section 3 weeks ago. So far so pains or anything. I'm basically back to normal already and feel just like I did before I got pregnant (but 10lbs lighter).
