I've had 3 cesareans. My kids are 22, 19, and 20 months. After the third, I had an infection for about a week, but then it healed.

The baby is now 20 months old, and my incision is opening up and bleeding. When it first started a couple weeks ago, I woke up to a mess, and a hole about 1/4" deep, and almost 1/2" wide. I put neosporin on it and bandages. Now that I have it healed back up (mostly), I'm having pains inside near the incision.

Anyone else have this happen? Is it normal? I hate to go to the doctor unless I need to since I don't have insurance, but I have to admit this is starting to worry me a little.

No it's not normal!

your incision is opening up after 20 months?? I had 2 c sections 18 months apart. the 2nd one took longer to recover but the incision was totally healed up after 2 weeks.

You need to see someone soon, it doesn't sound good.

Run to the doctor. You may have an infection. The pains may be fluid build up under the skin.
