Did you have an emergency c/s? I ask because I had a scheduled c/s (I was barely 20, they talked me into it because DS has a joint deformity) and I remember her talking about how she was going to make the incision low and small, specifically to increase my chances of having a VBAC in the future. But mine was scheduled and I wasn't even in labor when I had it... So I figure the outcome could be a lot different in an emergency c/s (and precisely the reason I was scared and went ahead and did it, even though I regret it now).
Anyway, after reading a birth story here of a mama having a HBA4C, I don't see why you couldn't give VBAC'ing an honest go.

Really though, even if the scar was that big on your uterus- what does that mean? Could mean nothing. I don't think the VBAC risk work up includes scar size at all, just vertical or horizontal and such. Try not to worry. My scar was hip to hip and I've had 2 VBACs with no problems. Honestly, the fact that your first birth was a section is a bigger risk factor in a Dr.s mind than how big your incision. Next time skip the Dr.
