Hi all,

I'm 15 weeks preg with my second, and have posted before about my two Fenton's Procedures (perineal repair to remove scar tissue), and the upcoming c-section because of it so won't go in to it all again but had a question please..

Can someone who has had a Fenton's procedure and who has had another pregnancy since, let me know what you experienced as you got bigger and heavier?

I am wondering if my scar tissue and reduced stretchiness from the op will give me problems/pain as I put weight on? Have bought more wheatgerm oil for massage in case and am wondering whether to ust start using it?

I had a Fenton's procedure after dd1 and went on to have two more (much larger) babies. I did find the scar quite achey as I got towards the end of pregnancy but no major problems and had normal deliveries with minimal tearing (3 or 4 stitches each time).

Thanks for your reply, good to know. Pleased to hear you had two normal deliveries afterwards too. That was brave!

Since I had the procedure twice and had a lot of tissue removed I think it would be a risk re: getting the are normal again should it/when it tear/s...

Shame though. Thanks again Kate.

i have had fentons op but 2 c/s afterwards but not because of the op. Had no problem with scar tissue throughout either pregnancy.
