I'm not 100% sure, but I *think* they shaved or trimmed just a little bit. I was kind of an emotional mess at that point. My scar is about an inch into my hairline, and although I wasn't crazy about the on call OB who did my surgery, I have to give him credit for doing a great job on it. The hair would hide it if I could even see it, but really, it's practically invisible. I think a lot has to do with the fact that I'm a good healer though. I do have the fat flap thing though, and my nerves are still wonky in that area. I can feel things, but it's semi-numb, if that makes sense.
The OB took a looooong time stitching me up, as I was yelling accross the sheet to please keep in mind that I wanted several more kids.
He used just steri-strips on the outside, and it really did not look bad at all, even that day- I was shocked.
I did end up with a little bit of fluid build up, and it popped open a tiny piece of the scar exactly one week- almost to the minute- after my water broke. All of this fluid was running down my leg, and I was so sleep deprived and stressed that I was this close to having a full on panic attack, thinking I was somehow going into labor again.
