So I was revised 5/27. I’m feeling great...
went to bed and awoke with a horrendous bruise on the left side of my belly button ... incision site.
Didn’t have a bruise when I went to bed.
It’s hard large and painful. Feels like a baseball underneath.
All the others are greenish as it’s been over a week.
I called the emergency service for my surgeon and his associate called me back.
Just said if no fever it’ll be okay. ER if I want but with COVID unsure I wanna go but I had surgery and everything was impeccably clean.
Maybe CITYMD. maybe it needs to be drained? 👩🏼‍⚕️

Are you on Lovenox or any other blood thinners?

Had my surgery on Monday and just a day or two ago I noticed a bruise form in the same exact place. Mine isn't hard or painful, however. The advice I was given was if any of the incisions are hot to the touch or is draining then you should contact the surgeon. 😓

Very strange. Completely nothing last night. Woke up side hurt and looked. Omg it’s huge and as the day progressed it’s gotten wider and seems to stick out.  I did contact when it got larger. He said If it bothers me def go to ER. 
How do you feel!?

It doesn't look great that is for sure. If your doctor said it's up to you, do what you think is best based on pain level, being uncomfortable, ect.

Hi all. I’m okay. Thank you!!!!
It’s a hematoma from the incision site. They gave me a CT SCAN with contrast. Use a heating pad and Tylenol.
I follow up with surgeon tomorrow.
It’s spreading which they said it is good and it’ll stop.
I think that we realized that I went to bed and might have laid on my side accidentally which in turn the blood pooled to the incision area.
So I guess I have to sleep
On my back :-)
Thanks everyone.

SO glad to hear all is well! WOW! Had no idea it would do this, but thanks to your sharing we now know. For pure comfort, I slept in a recliner for first few weeks —it just felt easier. Take good care of yourself, you’ve been through a lot and deserve “Blue Skies From Now On”... Love and Hugs!!
