I'm 5 weeks out from c/s #2. Apparently c/s #1 left me with major adhesions between my bladder and uterus. All along the transverse scar and up the left side some. Because of this my second scar is independent of the first and on the far right side.
C/s #2 was with a different (very pro-vbac) doc. She was quite surprised to see so much adhesions. She's a glass-half-full kinda girl and said on the bright side I'd never have a prolapsed bladder or uterus because they'd be holding each other up. She said at the time of the surgery that she couldn't break up the adhesions surgically because they were very strong. Also to consider may have been that I'd been in labor 3 days and by the time of the surgery was running a temp of 102. I haven't been for my 6 week visit yet, obviously.
I'm wondering if I should do anything (surgical?) about the adhesions. Maybe I'm at greater risk for more from the second surgery because of forming them the first time? What if I ever *need* surgery again. Will it be a problem?
