Is anyone else experiencing this? I'm six days post op and am florid purple and yellow from belly button to left hip. Doesn't hurt (right side hurts a lot, but not bruised) but very dramatic.

Hi HW, I also had bruising on my left side. The Dr. said that is where he had to do most of the hard work to get things out. Like extra cutting and pushing stuff around. So don't worry it will eventually fade away mine did. I used cold packs on it and it helped the swelling and didn't hurt as much.

HW wife

Bruising is quite common, I'm afraid ~ I remember being many shades of glorious technicolour! For me, it also took a couple of months to fade completely.

If you try a "forum search" (click right on the purple bar on the main page of this forum) on "bruising", you'll be able to read all the other ladies' experiences.

Remember to rest as much as possible and wishing you a smooth recovery. Take care!

I experienced alot of bruising following my surgery. I do bruise easily, even had lovely shades of yellow, purple and green after a lap I had before I had the hyst.

While bruising is common, if you're concerned, you should give the doctor a call.

i too had alot of bruising on the left side (also my Lap was more complicated than expected) and it continued to get worse but the doc said that was normal the different colors means you are healing! (at least that is what he told me )
hope you are feeling better take care!
