I'd say that some degree of repressed memory is probably common in all survivors. For myself, before starting my recovery I had memories of the abuse but they were only like I was watching a movie, as if it wasn't really me in them, but through the healing process feelings of what was happening while the abuse was going on were recalled and with them I started to reconstruct my identity. This was very painful but it helped diminish the disocciation that happened whenever the memories came to me before. I should also add that starting to remember the feelings associated with the memories triggered alot of flashbacks but I was told that this is common when just starting to deal with abuse in therapy.
