3 weeks post laparoscopic hysterectomy: One incision looks swollen

I am just about at my 3 week post op laparoscopic hysterectomy. All of the other stitches look fine and flat but one. There a slight yellowish bruise and I only caught that with the picture I took. And I can make a cup shape with it where as the other two lay flat. It is sore in that area I notice mostly when I go to stand up. Is this normal or schools I call the doctor?

Re: 3 weeks post laparoscopic hysterectomy: One incision looks swollen

I had laparoscopic surgery with 4 incisions. The one above my belly button was longer, the area around it more swollen, and it was in the fold of the skin making it seem like it was pinched inward. In reading my surgical report, that was where the larger port was inserted and where my doctor did most of the work. Though I didn't have a bruise, I bruise easily and am familiar with the yellowish color of a light or fading bruise. It felt a bit "lumpy" as it healed, but that was the same with at least one of my other scars. Even now, 15 months later, that particular scar is still a bit indented and has one part that's folded a little oddly.

I would simply monitor it as you're doing for any concerning changes. Things like redness, warmth, oozing any fluid, or a fever should be reported to your doctor.

PS: Apologies... I'm certain I responded earlier, but my post seems to have not made it online. Likely forgot to hit "Submit Reply" after previewing!
