What is this lump? TAH related??

I had a TAH, kept ovaries, in April of 2018. Had a few complications, but never any problems with the incision itself. Also, I never bled even a drop once I left the hospital.
Now just this week I noticed a strange bump. Seems to be in the fatty area a ways above my incision scar. The only thing I can think of is a dissolvable suture didn't disolve and has migrated and my body formed a kind of a cyst around it. No pain or anything. Weird.
It's possible that it's been there for a while and I never noticed it before, because I have lost 20 pounds this year.

Congrats on the 20 pounds!!!

No idea what the lump could be, but if it was me, I'd see the doc.

May God bless you with His perfect peace

Hi, 9876,
Thanks! The bump is a weird little thing, sometimes I can't find it at all. Seems more strange than alarming. I have an appointment in a month or so, I think, so I'll bring it up then (sooner if it "does something".)

Re: What is this lump? TAH related??

Does it disappear when you lie down, or can you push it back "in" when you do find it? If so, could it be a hernia?

Re: What is this lump? TAH related??

sounds like it could be a hernia...maybe an incisional hernia. definitely show it to your doctor at your visit.

I don't think it's a hernia. It's just a little thing and skinny, like a string. It's not tender. I can only find it when sitting down, and sometimes not even then. It's just weird.
