I think this is officially the fifth group I belong to on iVillage but I have found a lot of great advice so Im eager to join this group as well!
I delivered my twins by c-sections just over 2 weeks ago. While I opted for the csection it ended up a little more disastrous than I would have liked. Due to my significant blood loss I required a transfusion.. ugh. Anyone else have that experience? I still feel violated in some of the things they did to attempt to stop the bleeding and hate thinking back... but I do have 2 healthy, beautiful girls so it all worked out.
Every day I feel a little better, however, I seem to notice my scar feels hard underneath and feels a little painful/numb/itchy... kind of hard to describe. Is this normal? Everything else seems ok.. the scar looks amazing, I can hardly see it already. I've never had stitches before so I'm not sure if its normal for the scar to get hard or not.
