Ok first of all don't feel bad that you had a c-section to get your son out be proud the scar is there because of your beautiful son.
I think you need to make a complaint to the hospital regarding what happened to you, so they can investigate.
also I think you need to speak to your gp about how you are feeling xx

I understand I feel a little worried for you that you say you don't want to leave the house and you feel depressed. That's why I think you should have a chat with your gp, would perhaps be better to see a younger female gp who might understand a bit more than a male, you know what men are like.
With reguards the the hospital, I think a formal complaint is the way to go and insist it is investigated. The way you were treated sounds awful. They need to take it seriously and hopefully not treat anyone that way again xx
