    Sorry sweetie but its going to heal at its own pace. Im afraid you will need to go with it for now and dont over do it. I got a op which resulted in a scar the size of a csection scar 5 weeks before my wedding and my scar was weeping the day before so I went to the nurse and she gave me something to cover it with.

    If I had known I would need a c section for my pregnancies I would have asked them just to put in a zipper :lol:

    When I had the c section it wasnt as bad as when the scar was opened the first time. It took longer the first time than the 6 weeks they recommended. Im sure they gave me some sort of talc, like the one that they used to put on the babys cord / bellybutton.

    When they opened up the scar again I think it healed quicker but then I was too busy really to notice and my fat tummy was hiding it.

    Mine seemed to take longer this time as my luverly overhang was keeping it moist. I went back into normal knickers instead of big knickers so the waistband could lie on the scar to dry it out without a dressing. I'm not sure I could have done it after my previous sections, but this time my whole tummy is compltely numb so it didn't hurt.

    Laura, did you get both scars in the same place? They've given me a patchwork pattern - one to either side at wonky angles for the first two, and one right the way across for Alex - looks like they were doing a dot-to-dot. A zipper sounds good - we could have had home births.

    Ten weeks on, and having had an infection, the scar is closed but fairly red still and bruised around one end. It still hurts away inside when I do a lot, and sometimes I get sharp stabbing pains around the end that was infected. It also itches like crazy if I wear knickers that lie over it.
