Lump in lower left abdomen, after Appendectomy done through laparoscopic surgery. Suggestiion?

Hi, I recently had an appendectomy , about 5 weeks ago. About 3 days ago I found a lump in my lower left abdomen . It is not painful and I m very coconcerned. I would think if I had something serious they would have caught when they did my ct scan . My surgery was laparoscopic and since then my abdomen around my belly button seems lumpy. Should I be concerned.

Dear sir, this is not something to be concerned about. Your symtpoms can be due to procedure because of abdominal wall tissue swelling caused by troacar placement during the surgical procedure. If you had anything it wuld be seen on CT and during the laparoscopy. If you feel pain, have fever or fatigue you should go to hospital but if not then wait to see is this gonna persist. If you have opstipation or nausea then you should think of intestinal obstruction which is complication of appendectomy caused by adhesions but i think that there is no need for medical treatment.

Wish you good health
