    waiting for the Dr to call

    My stomach has been hurting for the last couple of weeks. I thought it was my pants rubbing up against the incision and just irritating the incision. Well last night I felt a tiny lump to the left of the incision. I'd say its about the size of a pea and very painful when you touch it. It doesn't bother me unless there is pressure against the area. I call my primary care Dr, and they want me to call the surgeons office. So now I am awaiting to hear from them.. I pray its nothing serious!! =/

    I hope he gets back to you quickly Megz. I'm sure it'll be fine, but you need to know.

    Megz - hope it's nothing more than scar tissue. After a small surgery I had once, I had a very similar pea size lump appear next to the incision, and was told it was scar tissue. So I truly hope that is all it is - please let us know as soon as you hear any news. Thinking about you and you're in my prayers!
