i had an emergency section 4 months ago and still have the flabby bits!!! it does go down slowly over time but remember its taken 9 months to get like that so it will take at least 9 months to go back again. dont over do it so soon afterwards or you will tear something and it will set you back even longer recovery. the no driving killed me as we live in the sticks!
when the wound is healed up use bio oil and as some other have said Arnica tablets. Maybe some epsom salts in a bath too.
enjoy your little girl and dont worry about your tummy its a certificate to show your a mummy!

I had twins 18wks ago bby c/s, my overhang is immense! I gained 3st and my twins were 6lb 7oz and 5lb 10oz. The scar on my right side is higher than my left and shows in any undies or bikini bottoms.
My twins are the most amazing little miricles but... I cannot stand my tummy. It's still sore at times and the right side looks like I have a bumbag on, get so down. I cannot stand my hubby looking at me naked. Will this improve?

I also had a c-section last Thurs and can't stand to look at the 'overhang'. I can't look at the scar!! Just can't face it. I know it will get better and I am so thankful for my 9lb6oz blessing of a dd! After waiting 9 years it's so definitely worth it.
The other thing I find difficult is knowing what to do...with regard to taking it easy but not too easy. The major surgery 'thing' is also hard to get my head around.
