I am thankful that I live in a time after doctors found a better place for the incision of a c-section. In days past the incision would be a vertical cut in the stomach almost obliterating the belly button and making a natural birth virtually impossible in future pregnancies. Now, the incision is horizontal and lower on the abdomen. I can barely see where the incision was, thus, making the scar basically undetectable. Plus, barring another baby in a breech presentation the possibility of a natural birth is at a higher percentage.
My husband just asked, "Your blogging about your incision?"
Well, it's not so much the incision that I wanted to tell you about. It was more of a set up for the next part.
You would think that with such a major surgery the scar would be the biggest remnant left of the whole procedure. However, for me, that is not the case. In recent years I have noticed that I have an adhesive sensitivity. They marked me with an allergy but there wasn't a whole lot they could do to avoid using adhesive on my now very tender skin. Needless to say, I have some scars left from tape and other adhesive typ things they used to sew me up.
An unlikely battle scar. Although, I find it highly entertaining and laugh. Now the nurses understand why I didn't want to just let them RIP my bandages off. ha ha ha!!!
