4 Months after Cesarean Lump in Stomach - V Scared!

Hello all, I'm wondering if any of you have had similiar symptoms to me. I had a cesarean 4 months ago with my ds. Last week I found a hard lump (about the size of a conker) on the right hand side of my tummy. Today I noticed a bruise in the same spot. This may be coincidence but I can't remember bumping into anything. I've got an ultrasound to get it checked out tomorrow morning but I'm really worried it might be something more serious. Has anyone had a similiar sympton following a cesarean birth?

CS 3 and a half months ago here and I've got lumps all along my scar and beyond.

I thought it was my appendix but apparently my appendix isn't that high up I should have paid more attention in biology at school I think LOL

It sounds like scar tissue. And it is now bruised because you keep fiddeling with it...

Don't worry, am sure it will be fine!

My outer scar was quite far away from my inner scar iyswim (think they gave me a tummy tuck LOL) so I had lumps that didn't obviously look like they were related to the CSec.
Was it an emergency CSec? My first one was and that was the lumpy one with a lopsided scar. My 2nd was elective and they did a beautiful job replacing it!

Well, went for an ultrasound and the doctor has decided I've bumped myself....must have been without noticing and this has caused a bleed inside my tummy. All is ok and it's officially called a fat necrosis. Have to go back in 4 weeks just to make sure it's disappearing but hopefully all is ok. Thanks for all your comments. By the way...we've recently moved from Bradford and my god what a difference in Harrogate Hospital. Spotlessly clean and efficient...
