Sorry for replying late
Black area is first image is not fat necrosis.It is normal appearance of umbilicus.
USG is not sensitive for fat necrosis.MRI is the investigation of choice in such cases.

Altered echogenesity is the term used in ultrasound. Alteration means deviation from normal appearance.It may be due to infection,inflammation etc.

Altered signal intensity is the term used in MRI.It is also deviation form normal signal appearance.

Brief Answer:
Adhesion appears in right side of abdomen.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Sorry for replying late
It is difficult to comment from limited number of images.
However,adhesion appears in right side.

Adhesions are commonly seen after surgery.Extent of adhesion depend upon many things like tissue handling,individual response etc.
Adhesions may also appear due to pelvic inflammatory disease etc.

Generally second line of AKT is advised after not proper response from first line.It depend upon clinical assessment,patient response etc.

Generally fat stranding doesn't need biopsy.If tuberculosis is suspected then biopsy may be taken form local site.
It can done under local anesthesia under ultrasound guidance.
It is not a risky and lengthy procedure.You can contact any renowned hospital.

Get well soon.

Hope I have answered your query.
Further queries are most welcome.

Brief Answer:
Your report suggests adhesions in lower abdomen.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for writing to HCM,
I've gone through your query and understand your concern,

Your report suggests adhesions in lower abdomen.As we discussed earlier,adhesions are generally due to post-op complications and generally it doesn't require any treatment unless it is causing complications.

I don't think you need biopsy. However you may need clinical correlation also.

Adhesions may develop without infection.It may develop during healing phase of wound.

Tubercular cause may need surgery.It is done after confirmation of nature of lesion.

Get well soon.

Hope I have answered your query.
Further queries are most welcome.
