Advice on lump above Laparoscopic Incision....

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi all, I am new to the group - I had a total hysterectomy with BSO by laparoscopy - 7 days ago.  All went well, although consultant did say it was a difficult op (bowel was stuck to womb). He showed me the before and after photos taken during op - amazing job.  My question is, I have developed a hard lump above my right hand incision - there is more bruising on this side than the left. Tummy button incision is ok at the moment.  Has anyone else had this or should I ring hospital up?

    Hi I had the same 3 weeks ago and I have lumps where my incisions are, it's just scar tissue.

    wish you well in your recovery , take it easy , it's hard if you're a doer like me, but let your body heal at its own pace

      Many thanks, I am finding it hard with the "taking it slow" part! I am a farmer

      And definitely a doer. I can't believe how well I feel (just a period pain ache) - post op! I have been

      Out walking with my dogs (off their leads). I feel blessed with a fantastic family

      Support group, although missing lambing this year! Hope your recovery is going well too.
