I had a laporoscopy surgery with a open incision back in August and I suspect what you are feeling is pretty normal for 15 days post-op. I had staples in my midline incision so I have some lumps too. The thing I used to gauge how well I was doing was how soon I was up on my feet and getting around with minimal pain.
I had my gallbladder remove 32 years ago and a friend told me to talk to my Dr. ( who was trained in doing micro-surgery) about
doing a cosmetic closure which he did do but the incision is so big that I could have skipped that request.
The laps are so much better than all those big incisions that used to be necessary.
My scars are visible but only to me because there is not going to be anybody peering at my old body.
