I had a bilateral salpingectomy and removal of adhesions performed by laparoscopy in early December. The day after surgery I noticed a hard lump about the size of a 50p piece just above and to the right of the central incision point which is just on my bikini line. I visited my GP and my consultant who said they don't think its a hernia as it's hard and probably not an infection as there is no redness or swelling (apart from the lump itself). I just can't get a diagnosis. All I know is that it wasn't there before the surgery and it's been there now for about 6 weeks. The only change that there has been is that it has become uncomfortable to touch over the last week, like a really sore bruise.
Any ideas???

  • It sounds like a hematoma,which can take several weeks to resolve.

  • If it is a haematoma will it resolve itself or will it need intervention?

  • If it doesn't gradually improve,it will need intervention.
