Dear Ms M.Hollenbach.,
Thanks for writing to us.
The bump which started to form after the initial suturing was the scar tissue surrounding the suture material.Usually an absorbable plain catgut would have been used. probably the surgeon would have suspected non healing with a haematoma
/infection so he would have removed the same in second sitting and closed the wound with secondary suture.
Pls continue the antibiotics/antinflammatory/proteolytic enzymes/vitamins
supplimentations as prescribed by your surgeon.The fibrosis
is a part of healing process which the scar undergoes and reduces in size and finally heals.
Kindly wait for 8-10 days for complete recovery. have patience.
Get well soon.
Dr Lt Cdr ASN Bhushan.
