User Topic: C-section and your intestines breaking through

I was watching a show, where the woman said something about her C-section scar rupturing and her intestines falling out of the scar, and now she is left with a bulge on her stomach...

I've had 2 c sections, and don't get what shes talking about... I thought they just cut through your uterus, and intestines were in a different section of your body..

Can someone explain what that is, or tell me a medical term for what the lady is talking about so that I can google it myself

It's called an incisional hernia. There is always an abdominal incision, which can be either horizontal or vertical. The vertical incisions are usually done in emergency situations and are more vulnerable to problems afterward such as hernias.

A friend of mine had this happen. It was kinda scary and very yucky. She doesn't have a permanent bulge though... that I know of!

The colon sits in your abdomen like a horseshoe. Your small intestine connects to it and it is much longer and is in your abdominal cavity it lies around other organs such as your uterus. Anytime the abdominal muscles are cut you are at risk of developing a hernia. Especially if you lift something too heavy too soon. The muscles are weaker and in some people normal scaring doesn't really make things stronger.

When tho happens or when you develop any type of hernia it is usually harmless but icky looking and feeling. There is a risk of too much intestine slipping through and cutting off circulation, causing an incarcerated hernia.
If its just a normal hernia then Surgery can be done to fix it. That usually involves placing a mesh in the abdominal wall at the weak spot and then sewing the weak muscles back together. This is an outpatient surgery. It can be very painful to recover from.
