Hi, I had some spots near my incision sites that felt like a mass. I am not sure if that is what you are describing. I thought it might be a hematoma or seroma. I did call the doctor's office a few days after I got out from the hospital, as I was was worried about it. He told me to put a warm compress on it and said to keep an eye on it. He thought it was likely a hematoma. At my 1 month post op the nurse practioner identified it as scar tissue. It was the size of a baseball a few days after surgery, it is now the size of a grape. Mine was sore to the touch, but isn't now (at almost 2 months post op).

I think it is best you call the doctor, so you can describe it to them, and they can tell you if it needs medical attention, if you just need to keep an eye on it, or if it is a normal part of the healing process.

Good luck with your weight loss process & wishing you a healthy recovery. 😊🍀

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!
