I am 2 weeks post-op (LAVH) and have what feels like a very small hard bump under one of my hip bone incisions. There is a similar (smaller) bump under my other one also. I am not running a fever but have increased tenderness in these areas also. Does this sound like normal healing or should I be concerned about an infection?
What you're describing sounds like normal part of healing. It takes awhile, but that tissue will soften up with time. Of course, if you develop a fever or it seems to be getting worse, check with your doctor.
After having my TAH/BSO on 11.14.07, i experienced the lumps above my incision. On my 2wk visit to see my Dr. i told him about it and he took a look see. My Dr. explained to me, that it was blood that gathered there after surgery and to put a heating pad on my incision and it would dissolve away. I checked the other day and i know longer have those lumps.. Check with you Dr. and explain to him/her what you are feeling and see what him/her tell you.... Have a wonderful and enjoy Happy New Year!!
