Sharp Pain In My Side And Now There Is A Lump.



Recommended Posts

My surgery was July 30th. Yesterday I was turning myself over in bed and experienced a sharp pain by my largest incision. When I

press on the incision this morning, I can feal a finger tip size lump. Has this happened to anyone? I am out of town, and this is kind of freaking me out.

Samething happen to me about 2 weeks out, my surgeon said it was normal it will last about 6 weeks or so. I'm 4 weeks out and still have a knot. Grant it It's a lot smaller than it was 2 weeks ago. But still there.

Thank you so much for responding Luauna. It is a huge relief to find out its normal.

Sharp pain was most likely the scar tissue ripping

You have a deep stitch in the muscle layer where they took your stomach out. The lump is scar tissue and will break away. Once your incisions are healed gently massage them.

I know that at 5 weeks I still get a slight pulling at that site. It gets better everyday!!!

Does anyone still have severe pain there? My Dr said it was a pulled muscle and stitch from sneezing. But OMG! It is still soooo painful! I'm two weeks out

I'm so glad to hear other people have experienced the "lump" thing. I have the same thing. I am three weeks post op and my Dr. said it's nothing to worry about. It's just weird to me to feel that lump.

My doc said to massage it and use a heating pad to help break up the scar tissue.

      Has anyone had problems with the bariatric miltivitamin? I am struggling to get them down. If they don't make me throw up, they make me feel sick to my stomach!! Does anyone do something different when it comes to vitamins?

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!
