Pro's - Baby stretched skin is now gone!
Stretch marks are now gone!
Con's - Painful and a very VERY long recovery
Belly button area still has numbness 2 years later
This is no picnic to go through but worth EVERY bit of pain. I kept thinking it would be like the 2 c-sections I had previously but it was no where as easy as a c-section. A person definitely needs care for a few days for everything (including help going to the bathroom). Getting up out of bed for the first couple of days requires someone to more get you upright.
It is a very slow recovery. A c-section recovery for me took 4-5 days. This took me a good 2 weeks until I went (slowly) to the store by myself. If you have kids - be sure to have help.
