I noticed last night that just above my husbands middle and largest incision is a lump about the size of a tennisball. You can only see it when he stands up and he said it doesnt hurt at all. I meant to call our doctors office today, but honestly with him not so concerned about it and a crazy day at work, it slipped my mind. did any of you ever experience something like this?

Are you sure its not just his port? The largest incision is where the port is placed and sometimes when bending a certian way or whatever I am told you can see and or feel it. I just got my surgery last week and I can feel my under the skin if I push around a bit.

From what I've learned at appts. It sounds like it's his port. I'm not sure, nor a doctor so you should call. lol.
