Issue with my incision

Question... I had my LAVH on 3-26-12. I had my staples removed yesterday 4-3-12 at my first post op appt. However, this morning while rubbing my swelly belly, (which helps relax me while I'm doing my short rounds around the living and dining rooms) I noticed a pea sized like rock (cyst?) in my incision on my left side. Does anyone know if this is normal? My doc said everything appeared normal. Is this some kind of scar tissue? Getting worried , so any comments would be great.

Re: Issue with my incision

It could be scar tissue or a small hematoma. Keep an eye on it and if you experience pain, swelling, redness or it gets bigger, call your doctor and have it checked out. It still wouldn't hurt to call the doctor and have a chat over the phone about it. It would put your mind at rest.

Re: Issue with my incision

Sounds like what I was worried about too. Most of my incisions had one of these pea sized lumps on one of the edges, one had it a little further in though. Turns out mine was where they started the stitches they put underneath the top skin level dermabond closure. As my general swelling decreased so did those, but even more so they disappeared as the stitches dissolved. I still have a little spot on one or two that may be scar tissue or perhaps they are dissolving slower. Trust me on this aspect - wait to get anxious over the way anything feels on your incisions until you are further out - like 6 weeks out. Things I was convinced I would be living with forever are no where to be seen now. Mederma is also something I used on my scars and it really seems to help the scar go down.
