Im 40 years old and had a total abdominal hysterectomy (vertical cut) in July 2015 following a borderline tumor removal. The surgery to remove the tumor was done 7 weeks prior to the hysterectomy and the same wound was re-opened.
i did lose a bit of weight after surgery (a stone) and had not far off a flat stomach, but I've noticed my abdomen is quite prominent and rounded now, and it's very tender when touched or leaned on. The scar itself has healed nicely and it's really starting to fade now, but I'm wondering if the shape and discomfort is normal? Could it be the muscle damage inside? I should be seeing my consultant in January as he told me I've to be followed up every 6 months but be interesting to hear from others.
