hi, i had my section over 6 months ago and it's still sore on the outside and i somtimes feel a pain on the inside, i had a longer cut than normal not sure why but the doctor told me that!
I'v been using bio oil which helps a little.
Am i been overly worried or is it normal.

My scar was tender for a long time - more than a year.

If it is really sore, itchy or inflamed, go straight to the doctor to rule out infection.

Normal, IME.

I had pain and soreness from my scar for a couple of years before it eventually settled down.

Get the GP to check it out if you are concerned, but it does sound pretty normal to me. It's fairly major surgery, when all's said and done.
