Re: 3+ c-sections- please share stories and info!

On my 3rd c-section the doc discovered a lot of scar tissue and knicked my bladder. They sewed it up and I regained the urge to pee in a week. My friend, who had 3 c-sections, had her bladder cut as well and never regained the urge to pee. She goes by the clock so she doesn't have accidents.

I think it all just depends on the person. Even with my complications from the last c-section, my doctor said he'd do another c-section on me. He thinks it's a personal choice and it's upto us to weigh the risks against the benefits. He just did c-section number 7 on a lady. He just said to keep in mind I had issues this time around and percentages of risks (specifically placenta abnormalities) go up with a 4th c-section. He's had 3 placenta accretas resulting in hysterrectomies on baby #4's and 5's.

Such hard decisions! While my doc is supportive, other docs in his practice are cautiously "okay" with 4th c-sections. haha. I talked with my doctor and he said just ask the office ladies to schedule prenatals with only him. Maybe you could talk with yours and ask the same as well?
