Anyone else with lumpy c-section wound?

Nearly five months after my c-sec and I'm not at all happy with this lump of flesh above the scar line that forms a nice fat horizontal sausage above the red scar line and below the knicker line.. attractive. Anyone else with this pant-problem? I'm doing sit ups occasionally (!) but that does nothing for baggy flesh...

Aw it's normal sadly. I've had 2 sections and have that...mine isnt red anymore...(the scar) but I do have the extra roll....you've been cut right through your muscle and unless you get a tummy tuck it wont go completely...but you're only 5 months post op...in another months it will be much better.

i got pg 9 months after my 1st cs and stil didn't feel normal by then even having lost my baby weight plus extra. after 2nd cs i would say it took me well over a year to feel the muscles recovering and the skin to reachits minimum. but as helloklitty (love the name btw) says it never goes completely.
