I'm almost 10 months pp and mine looks quite good. Just a thin, short, very light pink line. I did have staples and do have some scarring from the staples, so I do wonder if dissolving stitches would have been better. Oh well, no need to complain. It looks pretty good.

My scar was horrible after my second c-section, but my doctor removed a cyst last week and she got rid of some of the scar tissue, and now it isn't quite as bumpy as it was. But it still looks "angry". I'm hoping with time it will fade a little bit more. And now I have two lumpy areas on each side from my cyst being removed. If it's not one thing it's another!
Maybe I am crazy but I love my scar, or battle wound as I call it. Its a thin mishapen purple line, due to all the swelling I had, no bumps at all. I do look like a zip lock bag though. lol I had the staples, you would never know by looking, not hat I have ever let ANYONE see the scar!!lol

I had staples with mine..granted it is 10 yrs old..it is really low - just beneath the pubic bone line...I did have another one just above it from my tubal reversal surgery back in Oct. Both are white and you can hardly see them. My scar from my reversal was sewn inside out - the doc sews each layer up, that's how my OB does c/s as well. Hopefully next time won't be to rough on me.
