Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

I think you mean Endometriosis by endometrial nodule.This is a condition where endometrial tissue appears in the scar tissue and other pelvic organs and respond to hormones same as it does in the endometrium and produce symptoms.Such nodules have to be removed.

The collection of water in the port scar could be a complication caused due to dehiscence in the layers of the abdomen.Such fluid has to be aspirated as it can get infected and lead to complications.

Wish you good health.

Hi Jubina,

I understand your concern.

You need a course of sensitive antibiotics. If need arises, surgical drainage may be required.

Recurrent infection may be the cause of it.

Please get yourself evaluated by a skilled gynecologist.

Get well soon.
