It just basically means that the incision is L shaped instead of across, so i have a weak spot on my uterus. It makes my chances of rupturing during pregnancy go up by a bunch. It's a vertical incision, but on the side, along with a normal bikini line incision. The high risk dr said it means I can only have one more baby safely, but my chances of rupture are higher than a regular person anyway because i constantly contract and have a cerclage to hold my cervix shut. ...Think of a balloon with a weak spot that's constantly getting squeezed a little and a thick plastic string around the knot.
I would lie if i said I wasn't considering that 1 more baby. The argument is still leaning heavily on the No side, but maybe I'll change my mind. ... And there's proof it didn't scar me forever. lol
I think that it will take a little time for you to get everything straightened out, but you won't be damaged emotionally from this forever. It's scary, especially just sitting around and waiting for stuff to happen, but you can do this.
