While I still have a small bulge (I call it a sausage) around the incision site it is nowhere near as large as a football. Mine did start out larger and over the past two years since surgery decreased quite a bit. So it's possible that in another year yours will reduce a lot more. But for peace of mind I would have someone else look at it. Especially since you still feel tenderness in that area.

Good Morning Max,

Altho I cannot relate, I can tell you my doctor was concerned post-op of any bulges and mentioned something about the possibility of hernias.  If it is a hernia, that's nothing you want to mess around with, could cause blockages in the bowel, etc.

Definitely get it looked at again, that's quite sizeable.

Best wishes,

Donna~

i have same - it is from herniation in abdomen muscle after surgery

can be fixed surgically but mds seem to prefer NOT doing that.  can buy elastic surgical belt to hold it in, or just make jokes about having a beer belly
