I’m 13 weeks preg and getting a bit concerned about by scars allowing room for the baby to grow. I have large hip to hip scar. It was opened 4 times and got a very deep infection in it, which had to be packed daily for 6 months before it healed. It still causes me pain 4 years after last surgery, and has not stretched at all since I gained weight post surgery, all that has happened is that the fat sits in an apron above the scar line and hangs down and it is still stretched tight and flat below the scar line.
My baby is sitting below the scar line at the moment, and as I know I have very bad adhesions I am concerned it will not allow room to grow!
Has anyone else had the same sort of scar, where it’s hip to hip and not breast to pubic bone?
I also have large stoma scar which causes pain (that got infected too and healed badly)
As I’m in the UK we don’t have specialist doctors during pregnancy – just midwife (she’d never heard of a J-pouch and has never had anyone with scaring before) and my GP (he hasn’t got a clue – told me I had IBS for 17years without any examination) Basically, I’m on my own with no help from medical profession so I’d be grateful if any of you have any advice!
This baby is a result of 9 years of trying, 3 rounds of IVF, one miscarriage and £30,000 debt –so I’m understandable very anxious for things to go well.
