Hi folks, just a small complaint really. I say pain, it's more of a tender feeling. My biggest Nissen scar has a tiny water blister on it which doesn't seem to go but doesn't hurt to the touch, about a centimetre below it feels quite tender still. It's been just over 3 months since the op.
Other than that everything is going great apart from the reduced burping and increased flatulence. Did this happen to anyone else?

Instead of a water blister it might be a little air bubble that has slowly risen to the top. Is there fluid in there or is it kind of clear?

It's so small I can't tell really it's just at the very end of the scar

It's probably an air bubble. I had something similar sounding happened to me. Don't worry about it, it will go away.

Right I'm beginning to think it might be infected. It's tender all around the scare area. I know the big ones take longer to hel and it tends to hurt more first thing in the morning. Is it worth talking to my doctor about antibiotics?

You could have him check it out to be safe.
