Jennybear, can you go back to your surgeon, or maybe even your GP if she's been caring for you since before your surgery? I get paranoid occasionally too, so I know you can worry over nothing. Sometimes my left shoulder seems much lower, for example. But at this point, for me, nearly 5 years out, nothing has gone wrong. So I think it's possible your imagination is playing tricks on you, But I think, to be on the safe side, you need to see someone who knows. Have you shown your mother your back - she may be able to tell you whether your rib hump has increased.
