Hi Doctor,

My wife is 24 years old. 2 years back she had given delivery. Recently we noticed that a sold kind of medium size partical formed inside her body. These are able to sense when touched at sides of the waist. She is doing good but I want to know why these are formed?
will they effect in long run?
If we have to go to a doctor to which Specialist I have to visit? is it Gynic or gastero or etc. Please suggest which doctor I should go to check physically.

I am unable to understand your description.
Do you feel or even see lumps along side waist? What is its size? How many are they in number? Are the superficial or deep?
Did she have normal delivery or C section? Since when is she having these lumps?

Answers to these may help me in knowing what she is suffering from!!
Best would be that she be physically examined by a surgeon near you!!

Awaiting your reply..
Take care

Yes I fee lumps on the side waist. size might fit in palm or little less than that.
There are 2 both sides of the waist. They are not superficial and not XXXXXXX if I press skin little then i can feel them.
She has C section. We realized these lumps 6 months back.

is there any thing to worry?

Sorry for replying late.

Very difficult to understand what the problem is, without examining your wife.

I would suggest you consult a surgeon near you.
Don’t think, it’s too much to worry about, but never the less, don’t ignore this as well.

Let me know, if I can be of any help. And also, do let me know, what the surgeon says.

Take care..
