Re: weird place for C/S incision
I have a very overweight friend, and her ob offered a higher side incision because it would be easier to heal. She has a large stomach and it hangs over where a traditional incision would be. She is opting for the bikini one anyways, just knowing it will take extra care and cleaning and all that. I have a little bit of that so I know it takes a watchful eye, but mine healed just fine. I made sure to let water rinse over it in the shower and patted it dry really well afterwards. DH looked at it daily to check for any signs of infection.
If I were you, I would be offended too. Especially if you aren't very overweight. Maybe ask the dr. what others in the practice do and what the results are like. I would refuse any kind of gastric anything though... that's not what you need while you're recovering from a csection and pregnancy.
