Hi all - I may well be having a c section in Oct. My biggest fear is my recovery from my appendectomy a few years ago - it was the worst pain I have ever been in in my life, and I couldn't stand up straight for at least five weeks, I was in tears with the pain every day for weeks, and I wasn't fully recovered for probably three months. I have no idea if this was due to a bad surgery (seems unlikely, I had head of the private section of St Vs in Sydney) or just that I have a very low pain threshold - which is entirely possible and I'm not embarassed about it if that's the case!
Anyway - wanted to know how similar the operations are, am I likely to expect the same level of pain and bad recovery? Anyone had similar experience? Bad appendectomy recovery followed by csection?
