|I live in ontario, canada. I had my ovaries out May 23/12. I was experiencing more pain on the left side immediately after the surgery and when I told my Doctor he told me that he made a larger incision. It was quite painful. He gave me meds for 5 days then I had to go to my MD and get more pills so that I could sleep at night. Shortly after the swelling reduced I noticed a lump beneath the incision. It continues to be present and is very hard to the touch. I had blood work done and everything is normal. I had an ultrasound done and you can see a dark area on the pictures. What could this be. Blood clot, cyst, or medical instrument? What do you think? I have pain from my umbilicus to left side and stabbing pains at times, even at night when I am sleeping and move. I also have pain in the tops of both feet, knees, knuckles, since the surgery?|

In our opinion in your case this is blood collected called as hematoma. Hematoma after surgery or postoperative hematoma is basically a localized collection of blood in the surgery site.
It may develops just a few hours after the surgery, due to some kind of damage to the surrounding blood vessels or as a result of poor aftercare of the patient.
The hematoma dissolves automatically after a couple of week. In severe cases, wherein the hematoma enlarges, a surgery would be conducted in order to re-open the wound, drain the accumulated blood and clamp on the arteries, just in case, the bleeding still persists.
Some analgesics and anti-inflammatory drugs or medications like ibuprofen can be considered to be able to relief the pain sensation or discomfort. Some additional blood thinning medications may also be given to the individual to be able to dilute the blood clot. For bruises or contusions, it is possible to likewise try some natural home remedies for the treatment of hematoma, like applying ice or cold packs a few times a day or applying gentle heat with warm towels, a hot water bottle, or perhaps a heating pad around the affected region in order to decrease the hemorrhage and edema.
However, when there is no change in the problem do not hesitate and instantly consult the doctor who has performed the surgery to elucidate the case.
