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.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
