Black spot next to incision
 
Ok so I have been posting about my Oats procedure, which is 11 weeks post op and things seem to be going fine in that department. I just have a bit of a concern last night in the shower I noticed a black spot about a 1/2" long and 1/8" wide, right next to the top of my incision. At first glance it looked like a small bruise but I did nothing for there to be a bruise there, on closer inspection it is actually black, not blue black like a bruise might be. Its not hot to touch and it is tender in that area but it has been since my surgery. It does look like it maybe growing but I am not sure. Please tell me your opinions, I don't want to go see the doctor and have him look at me like I'm crazy.

Could it be a piece of suture left behind?

I highly doubt its suture since I had those removed 9 weeks ago, and yesterday morning this mark was not there. Thank you for your comments thought.

I had one hanging around after about 6 or 7 weeks so it isn't unusual. Glad it's gone - whatever it was.
