What type of closing did they use?
Mine is a little longer than normal cause i had to have an appedectomy too.. It itches occasionally still esp since i have a growing belly again :) Im not sure what kind it was i just remember getting staples after..
Yes, the c/s was very similar to the reversal.

At 9 months PP it is purply-pink and slightly raised with some thicker bumps and irregularities from extra scarring from some stitches from the inside that did not dissolve and decided to get infected and come out through my skin. :/ Not cool. I wish it was prettier and more symmetrical. I don't like it but I don't really dislike it either. It is still numb in some areas up to a half-inch on either side of the scar. I had some searing pain in the first several weeks, but it was more inside than just with the incision. It is still tender though and if I lean against the counter in the bathroom or if LO kicks it (and he LOVES to kick, hard!) it sure hurts. It is more tender at the places where the stitches festered. Ok, I guess I don't like it. It makes me feel very negative. :/
:( I'm sorry.
My kitchen sink is catty-cornered and my Splenda holder is behind it. Sometimes I'll forget and bump my stomach (which is perfect height when I stand on tippy-toes to reach behind the sink). Stars. Nothing but stars. LOL

And I'm with you on wondering how that hole was big enough, but you know the other hole ain't very big either. LOLThe closing type I was talking about is stitches, staples, steri strips.
Nope, no stitches then either. Closing type---duh. LOL I'm guessing like yours. I only had a tiny stitch that got removed. It was at the end and it was a loop. I had steri strips until they came off.
I think it's easier to imagine the other hole expanding than the one that is cut, kwim? LOL
