I know several women who have had multiple C-sections. The healing process sounds a little longer, but it sounds like you had to do a lot of healing from your vaginal birth too, so it might just be different but not worse. My friend had a C-section with her twins and she said the during was painless, she was wide awake, and she was hilariously drunk on the pain meds. She was cracking jokes with the doctors and nurses about if they could see what she ate that morning, and when they showed her a baby she was like "Eeew it's gross put it back! Kidding, I LOVE HIM SO MUCH!!!" Her husband said it was the funniest thing ever.

Talk to moms who have had c-sections, because it isn't all horror stories, especially the moms who planned it or weren't totally surprised about needing it.

Although they said they would probably have to keep their hand kind of in me and push my uterus back to keep it from coming out... We are actually moving currently and I'm switching to a new OB once I get there, I didn't feel the need to switch before our move to just switch again later. In the very very beginning I did see an OB a couple times and they recommended c section especially if baby was over 8 or 9 pounds. My ds was 8lbs 4oz.
Wow. Ick. the idea of someone having to stick their hand up to shove my uterus around... I guess where there is a will, right? Get yourself a good OB, one with a solid reputation, check on google and yelp, and then let him or her help you feel comfortable with whatever you decide.
