    Hi hope you are doing good. Yes I had a hematoma also on one of incisions too. I knew this was possible because of my appendix surgery I remembered I had one too. So don't worry like you said it looks fine and not infected. Way to go. We know our bodies. Hope this will help ya out. Best Healings.

      it looks ok. the brusing is somewhat large. It can be from the surgeon hitting you stomach wall. If it's not infected you will be fine. In a week you should start healing from that. Just be watchful ok. Bye
