I had laproscopic surgery last Wed. to remove my ovary and a tumor (luckily benign). The made three incisions. The dr. said the incision they removed the ovary and mass was bigger than anticipated so they could remove it without it breaking up. Well that incision is burning. I went for a follow up on Friday and dr. said no infection. I go again this Friday but the burning sensation is really bad. It starts at the incision site and radiates into my groin area. It feels like an overdose of icy hot. Is this normal????? It burns even more when standing or sitting but subsides when laying down??? I am trying to hold out until my visit on Friday. Has this happened to anyone else or shoud I be concerned????

Great news xyz123! I hear ya about the burning! Had a laparotomy in May '05 for borderline OVCA & had burning sensation that you're experiencing as well as numbness. Along entire incision. Felt like bad sunburn. Oncologist said not uncommon, most likely nerves regenerating. Also burned when I overworked abs so take it easy & let your body heal. Good news is that burning sensation eventually went away as did numbness. Lasted about 6wks.in varying degrees. As you know everyone's experiences are different, so hoping your burning subsides quickly.
