I am going to make an appointment tomorrow to get it checked out but just wanted some reassurance in the meantime.
Roughly halfway between my incision and my belly button, I have a golf ball sized soft mass under the skin. From the outside there is nothing visible except a slight dimple, but I think it may be a hernia. It doesn't cause me any pain and I have no symptoms to suggest something more untowards is going on.
Just thought I would update this incase anyone else worries about it.
Turns out it isn't a hernia, its fat! My lovely (?) doctor informed me that I'll never be the same again after a c-section. Apparently it is a blob of fat that hasn't spread out properly after surgery.
No now I'm not just a bit fat after a baby, I'm fat and blobby too!
