| | Post Hysterectomy Complications
I had a hysterectomy about 6 weeks ago and I started swelling immediately after surgery right over my incision. My stomach has always been flat and since my surgery I no longer have a flat stomach. I had a low bikini cut in my stomach. Right above my incision on the right side there is a very obvious swollen area. It has been ery tender to touch until this past week, now it is numb (which I think is usual). My doctor has been watching it ever since a week after surgery. It has not gone down any! He thought at first that it was a hematoma. We had an sonogram down and found a small area of blood right under the top tissue. The next week I went back in he said that it was a hematoma again about the size of a fist (this is really about the size of the swelling - maybe more). He sent me to have a ct-scan and they found nothing. I went to see my doctor again two weeks ago and he said that he doesn't know what's going on and that after 3 more weeks (next week) it has not gone down he will send me to a surgeon and see what he thinks. PPPPPPPLLLLLLLEEEEEEEAAAAAASSSSSSSEEEEEE E, if someone has any suggestions, please respond. I am desperate here. I mean my pants are too snug now and I have not gained any weight, I've actually lost since surgery. I went to the beach last week and was so self conscious about this bulge that I didn't want to wear a swimsuit. It is very noticeable! Help, awaitingananagel
