Petrified of Being Awake During C-Section ~ "I am petrified of being awake during the operation, and I donít want anyone touching my back. Can the anesthesiologist force me to have a spinal?

     º Encouraging Healing After Two or More C-Sections
I am pregnant with my third and have had 2 prior c-sections. I'm a little hesitant because the scar still feels numb. I did not heal well with the last one, but it may be because I was way too active with my toddler and newborn (no outside help). Could you give me any advice on how to encourage healing?
