    Have you had a follow up exam with your surgeon as of yet?  If not ..... this sounds like it maybe a good reason to schedule one.  Many different skin manifestations can occur at a surgical site - your physician will be able to tell you if its normal or not.

    Let us know how its goes,


  • Seeing him tomorrow for follow-up, will ask his opinion on the lump. Think it could be scar tissue?

  • Fortunately my staples came out clean. I massaged the scar with Bio Oil last night and this morning the lump seems to have gone down a bit.
