pain at old C section scar?

I am one week post op. I had a TVH and all went well except that the DR ran into some problems with adhesions/scar tissue at the c section scar. He contemplated making my TVH a TAH, but was able to get through and all went well. I had real bad constipation and finally went today (thank goodness!). My question is since he had trouble at that spot would that explain why that is the only area that I have pain in? I mentioned it to him earlier this week and because of my bowel problems he assumed it was gas. Sounded logical to me. I still have the pain. I had it from the day of surgery and it's still there. Granted, before I had a bm it was worse, but it's still there. Anyone out there had any similar experience?

pain at old C section scar?

Hi! My doc told me when I was having pain in only one area that the more trouble they have in there, the more stitches they haveto use in that area, which in turn means more pain. Mine was on my left side but I had more endo on that side and ended up with something like 6 layers of stitches on that side. Just get plenty of rest, the ladies here suggested that for me and it wasn't long the pain had started going away. Now I can't tell a difference in my sides.
Good Luck!
