Did anyone massage their c section scars to improve sensation/appearance? Is 5 weeks too late to start? Any tips would be welcome.

Maybe it's because I also have appendix scaring but I didn't do anything to my c-section scar and I've forgotten about it. I put all sorts on my appendix scars and I can't see much difference.

Def not too late to start. Worth doing, because it helps break up tissue behind the scar (useful if you need another c section in future - less scar tissue for them to deal with). You need to be quite firm though so make sure scar is fully healed first, have a Google for directions. You can use bio oil or any oil really.
