This wouldn't happen to be the one on the left side just below the ribs is it?
Either way I have had that with several of my incisions. It was explained to me that it can be from the internal stitches coming loose and causing the bump area or scar tissue. All of mine have since flattened out.
Remember the whole healing process takes a true year. Especially for the muscles.
I learned quite a lot ablut wound healing when my esophagus was torn and they were going top remove it because it wouldn't stop leaking after surgery to repair it. They said it takes 12 to 14 days for osmosis(I believe that was the word they used) to occur and at that point the connection of the stomach to what was left of my esophagus would be strong enough for me to start taking liquids in. Anyhow, that is what they said was the beginning stage of healing and that the rest would take a year for complete healing. Our bodies are amazing that they can function very well while still in the healing process.
