hard knot

May 07, 2008 - 3 comments






hello everyone, I still have a hard knot near my belly button. it is about 2 inches long. No more bright red around it but still hard. I ran a full course of antibiotic Keflex and now 2 weeks after surgery it is still a hard knot. This coincerns me. anyone having this? What is under there and how long does this go on? Other 3 incision sites look excellent. My friend calls this one incision site my "problem child"

      I should  have thought of this yesterday PLEASE forgive me my dr put me oh hormones yesterday and I am still pretty much on hormone over load or hormone deficantcy...... anyway I have pretty good size lumps along my incision I  to got an infection but the lumps are scar tissue and will probably not go away. ask your dr if your lump is scar tissue..... it is a good guess with out seeing it
     good luck

I forgive your hormones! I saw the doctor he thinks maybe some blood under there, if it does not show signs of infection he is not too concerned, It is NOT a hernia and he thinks it will just take time and slowly go down. It appeared 5 days after surgery so scar tissue unlikely but i forgot to ask. I try to write a list so Im prepared. I go back to work Monday, If I could afford to be off I longer ( its been 3 weeks for recovery from laprascopic) I would have asked for him to extend it but..... off to work I go. Wish me luck, Im still tired and job is high pressure. Keep me posted on your progress
