im 38 weeks today and planned in for my second c section next week after I had an emergency 1 the 1st time round . my question is how do they go about it in regards to the scar that is there from b4 ?
I believe in America they cut away out the old scar tissue to make a clean fresh new 1 ,does anyone know if this is this how they do it in the uk ? Im only asking cos my scar is lobsided and comes slightly up my stomach causing it to pouch over post my son , now with pregnancy it has stretched wider so im worrying what there gona leave it looking like after surgery as I tend to suffer with keloid scaring after surgery ( previously had 2 moles removed for pre cancer changes and both went horrible and took years to settle down after treatment ) .
iv got my pre op wed but when iv asked previous they just say they go in the same scar, not what they do to put u back together , im pretty sure I was glued back together last time as I didn't have staples or external stitches . im worried im gona have new scaring on top of old scaring and it will affect how I heal .
I would love to hear from anyone with experience or advice.
