2boys - September 5

I was told i have a lot of scar tissue after my 2nd cs and i have heard people say they have alot of pain associated with the scar tissue anyone else have this problem? i think if i was so full of scar tissue i would feel some type of pain and beings how my uterus was adhered to my bladder and colon last time i would think that i would have experienced some pain.so does anyone know what scar tissue feels like and do they have problem?

I found some information last night on Scar Tissue, (treatment, how it happens etc) on the website for 'Womans Surgery Group' and also under 'Abdominal Adhesions, Prevention and Treatment'. sorry I didn't take down their address, but it showed pictures of scar tissue and told how the doctors knew very little about how to fix it or how exactly why it happens. I think if I get pregnant again and need another section I will request them to investigate and remove the old scar tissue, and request them to make sure they do the section right!! to minimise the risk of a greater amount of scar tissue!!

I was told after my son was born that I had a lot of scar tissue but I never was in any pain so I didn't know not everyone who has scar tissue from C-Sections have pain with it some do talk to your Dr I have a friend who when she had her hysterectomy said when she laid on her stomache that she would feel something like a ball in her stomach when she asked her Dr about it he said it was from scar tissue and at times her stomach bothered her but not all the time I have noticed with my 3rd pregnancy that I have a lot of pain at the incision site the Dr told me it was where the scar is stretching it feels a lot like it did when I had my first C the burning sensation on each side of the incision

To Amanda, it sounds like you have similar problems to me. Can I ask do you sometimes, just prior to period and after, have a pain around your hip aswell, that reaches round to your back? I have requested to have an ultrasound scan and await a date. One lady previously suggested 'incisional endometriosis' to me, I am going down this line of invesigation to see what I can find out. I too am trying to get pregnant, but to no avail. Getting on a bit now, dont want to waste much more time.
