    I've had two c/section, I noticed that 2nd time round, it was alot neater than the 1st, I had woman ob that's what I put it down too! I still have some numbness last c/section 18months ago, it's almost unnoticeable! And yes they cut over the same scar, it does hurt a lil more cause they cutting through scar tissue! But you don't really feel it!

    Is your scar itchy? After the revision the 2nd time around it's heaps better, but after the first it was badly raised and insanely itchy. Mine is also very visible *sighs* why couldn't I get the light silvery line?

    Light silvery line...what's that?! I hear you Delirium , I wish too!

    Mine is getting better on the itchy front, it used to drive me bonkers, but now it's only ever itchy occasionally, thank goodness.

    Almost 3 years on you can barely see mine but I still don't have full sensation and at times it gets quite itchy!

    Thank you fellow caesar mummies for sharing your scars!

    I had been wondering if mine would fade more but don't know anyone IRL I could ask.

    Mine was itchy too and sometimes I'd be dying to scratch it but was in public! I think in general people don't realise how "low" the scar is. Not something you can really flash around at a party!! LOL!

    I swear by cheap old micropore tape to help heal the scar.. I've had 2 c/s and you can't even see where I was cut they are so perfect!!! About to have a 3rd c/s in a few weeks and hope its just as good..
    As for feeling tho I still have no feelings in part of it or really sensitive in other parts..
