Had my second c section 8 days ago and i have had a proper look today at my cut as i thought they had gone through my old scar but they haven't, they have gone about an inch higher and given me a new one! It looks great and very neat with no swelling or redness so i'm happy anyway.
I guess I'm confused about the two 'cuts' ... one is the abdomen and one is the uterus. I guess here people are only talking about the scar on the skin (abdomen)... not the uterus, right?
I heard that with my second c-section they cut out the old scar (Europe), and I was told they'll cut out the old one again if I have a third section (Australia, public system). I think they are also talking about the skin on the abdomen (and not the uterus).
