General Surgeon 's  Response
Hi ! From your history, it is not possible to know whether the bumps you are feeling is in the parieties or inside the abdomen. I would suggest you to consult a general surgeon early, who with clinical examination may advise you for some blood tests and an ultrasound abdomen for diagnosing your condition. You should not wait for all these seven days.
Wishing you an early recovery.
