I had to have a c-section 2 weeks ago and since my daughter was lodged in my hip they couldn't do a bikini c-section, the had to do a vertical incision. Well now everytime I see the incision it makes me cry. This doctor MUTILATED my body. He did not stitch the skin back the way it should be so I have what I call bumps from the weird stitch and since I am a bit heavier it's like there is a tunnel where my skin indents. It is seriously making me depressed and Idk what to do. I was told before my c-section that it would be a bikini cut and after I was already in recovery they told me I had a vertical c-section. I just want to cry every single time I see it. Help.

I'm sorry this has happened to you. Don't let people tell you that you should just be glad you have a healthy baby. You are right to feel angry and upset about your body. It won't ever be the same. Try to get in to see another doctor to see if anything can be done to make the incision be better. There are medications to help make scars heal better. Ask for that medication and use it.
You arn't going to be able to wear a bikini but they make cute one piece suits. How often do most people go swimming anyway?

I don't want to upset you more but you should know that it's important to wait before ttc. The World Health Org recommends at least 3 years. You may be able to only have one more c-section, two at the most.
