I had gallbladder surgery last Friday, had staples removed 2 days ago on Tuesday & last night I started hurting in my upper abdomen, and noticed a large knot under the incision. It is very sore to touch, move, stand up, stretch, etc. All of my incisions have closed well, except that one and it is somewhat open and red bc of knot I'm assuming. I called the surgeon that done the surgery, and they said it may be from lifting (even though I haven't done much??) and to come back NEXT TUESDAY?? Idk if this is normal, or not?? Has anyone else had this issue? Or can anyone give me any advice on this?Answer Question

I had dissolvable stitches when I had mine out not staples. It was done Laparoscopically with three small incisions. My Son was 10 months old at the time, so I had no time to rest except when he napped. I had a little soreness but no real pain afterwards. If you run a fever or the incision oozes then call the Dr. back ASAP. Otherwise, you just need time to heal.
