I have recently been diagnosed with a lipoma on my abdominal wall and have been scheduled for surgery next week. I was wondering if anyone has had this done and what can I expect afterward. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

  • I have recently been diagnosed with a lipoma on my abdominal wall and have been scheduled for surgery next week. I was wondering if anyone has had this done and what can I expect afterward. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Well I have had surgery. It wasn't as bad as I expected. But, it was still a little scary for me. It feels like I have just given birth. I cannot see the incision as it is still covered by a bandage, which I can remove tomorrow. I am really sore and it is hard for me to bend over but the Dr. did not give me any restrictions on lifting because he says he only cut into tissue not muscle. I am not going to risk anything so I will hold off on lifting anyway.
