SONGBIRD,

I'm sorry you've had such troubles! May I ask you how you knew you had a hematoma? I have an odd, soft, lumpy, tender, squishy thing to the right of my incision.

I was concerned about a hernia. Dr. said she "doesn't think so", but to keep an eye on it. Hmmmm. She thinks it's just swelling and fluid, but sometimes it's a little light purplish.

Just looking for advice as my Dr. is kind of disinterested in general.

Thanks!

Has this happened to anyone - hematoma? UPDATE

Hi



Just wanted to update you, I saw my Doctor this morning and he removed the JP tube.

I was afraid it would hurt and he said it might sting, but it didn’t hurt or sting. PRAISE THE LORD!! He left the staples in just as a precaution and plans to remove them on Monday afternoon when I see him. He said the incision looks incredible.

He put a folded four by four gauze bandaged over the area where the tube was at and said we need to re-dress it twice a day and we can use antibiotic ointment on it to help it along in the healing process.

I’m a little muscle sore on the right and left side of the incision and the nurse told me to take some ibuprofen for that.

I still can’t get over how good I feel since having this surgery. No menopause symptoms either. PRAISE THE LORD!!

The Doctor said I could go to church this Sunday if I feel up to it.

YAY, back to church! I loved that first Sunday, to praise God for his goodness. My only thought is PLEASE don't overdo it. I felt great as well, and over did it and now 2 weeks post op, i am feeling HORRIBLE most days. I should have stayed down and let my body heal. Even though the outside felt good, my inside was not ready to do all the bad stuff. I am so glad you are doing so good.

Yes, I also had a hematoma. Mine did not open the incision, but it caused a great deal of additional pain and extra time to recover. I am almost 6 months post op now and still have a bit of pain and discomfort. Some of that is just scar tissue, but I will say that it was definitely a problem. The best thing I found to do, even though it was painful, was to get up and walk every hour or two, even if it is just for 15 minutes. Good luck to you.
