Question Can scars from a previous surgery open up during pregnancy???

Hello ~

This is kind of a weird question, which I will also ask my doctor about at my next appt. this week, but I wondered if anyone know's or has experienced anything similar???

I had gall bladder surgery about a year prior to getting pregnant (I'm 7 1/2 months along now) and I've been noticing as my belly becomes bigger, the scar from the surgery feels like it's tearing inside. Is that possible???? I don't feel it constantly, but I do feel it alot and it's begun to concern me. Could this be something else unrelated to the scar, and it's just coincidental that the tearing pain I feel is exactly where my scar is??? The scar is towards the top of my belly right in the center, about 3 inches above my bellybutton.

I would appreciate any advice or comments you might have. As I said, I will definitely be bringing this up with my doctor on Thurs.(4/13/06) when I have my next appt.

Re: Can scars from a previous surgery open up during pregnancy???

I'm glad someone has the same question as i do...i was beginning to think it was all in my 5 1/2 months pregnant and i have a previous scar from a cyst that was removed 5 yrs ago, i would think it would be good and healed....but the other day i sneezed real hard i felt like it was tearing on the inside...since that happened i have been having the same feeling for few days now.Its right below my bellybutton and right underneath my scar that i get that feeling...sorry i couldnt help any, but now u know ur not the only one.I'll be sure to ask at my big ultrasound appointment tommorrow and if i find out anything ill let u know.Thanks Leeniegirl

Thanks for responding. I too, feel the tearing-like pain when I'm coughing, sneezing, or laughing really hard. I'm glad it's not just me, I too, will let you know what my doc says on Thursday's appt. This is kind of scary hey???

Good Luck and thanks again!!
