I had an emergency section with my first after being induced and a 12 hour labour.
It was fantastic!
No pain and the recovery was much better than I expected.
I think the worst thing of all is the first time you get up after the op as you feel like you have been split in two, to be fair though I had no pain relief at this point as I had chosen not to have morphine or anything. Once I was up and walking tho it was OK.
The hardest thing is feeling fine but knowing you have to be careful in the weeks after.
Don't get me wrong, it is major surgery but all for the good as u you are more concentrated on your new bundle in the weeks after than to really worry about yourself, lol!
My scar healed well. As for the weight thing, it started falling off afterward as I was breast feeding but when I stopped at 10 months it all went back on and more, lol! Nothing to do with the section tho I might add. Just my old friend Cadbury!!
