I didn't know that the actual scar would be right IN the top of my pubic hair line, and that I would constantly be itching from it like crazy even at nearly 10 mos out!

I always knew there would be the scar, but it's this piece of information that I really didn't know. And it bugs me so bad. I like to stay fairly trim down there (sorry for the TMI), and that's become really hard because it is so uncomfortable when things start growing back. Ouch-ouch-ouch!

Did not know adhesions were a possibility. I have a bladder adhesion now and it sucks!!! I don't blame my doc though; my baby had to come out like, NOW and there was no time to discuss the surgery, and we had thought I was going to go vaginal all along... And since baby had to come early I missed the birthing class on c section/medical interventions. Cards were stacked against me a bit lol

I knew adhesions did happen, but I don't know that I knew that when I had my first baby. I was so naive back then, and it was probably for the best. LOL

BTW, how did you know that you got the adhesions?

I hear you! My kid had to get born (pre-E) the week before the last class. The only reason I didn't bring the baby to class was that it was 34 weeks and she was still in NICU. I don't think much of the class teacher for insisting I talk about it,

Oh there are so many things...

I'll pick 2:

I didn't know it would be 6 months before sex was good again.

I didn't know I would be a year out and still hurt myself by bumping my incision or lifting something heavy or picking up a new exercise.
