Well...ok he says it looks alot better, but there is still a small hard lump by the incision site.  He says it's a stitch that didn't completely dissolve and is festering in there.  I go continue on my antibiotics until finished, then go back to see him in 2 weeks.  He may have to do an incision (with freezing of course) and go in there and get it out... (OUCH!)...oh well, I am just so happy with my reversal and that things are working so well, that all the rest is just minor stuff!!!!!.......Cheryl tongue

I had a stitch right at my waistline that did the same thing - annoying as Heck!!! Like you said, minor little things compared to the big picture, right?
