Tubals - Anyone Else Have Complications? (Plus rant)

Tubals - Anyone Else Have Complications? (Plus rant)

Chilipepper Chilipepper
I got my tubes tied on 10/20, and developed a hard lump to the right of my navel a few days later. I went to my follow up appointment and the doc wrote out a script for a CT scan to see if it's a hematoma, hernia, or something else. I have no pain, although it's uncomfortable to lie on my right side. Public health (whom I got my tubal through) says this is completely unprecedented and they're having to consult supervisors that won't be in their offices for a few days ... meanwhile the doc who did the follow up wanted me to have the scan done yesterday (11/1) and the supervisors to deal with it are unavailable.

I can't be the only one to develop a complication after surgery.

And please don't do the "You get what you pay for" crap. That's applied to goods and services that can written off and forgotten about. Health care has life-long consequences and cannot be summed up as "Oops, sorry about that, your quality of life is gone, sucks to be you." Because I do know a medical lawyer that will sue them for incompetence, and I have a long list of grievances against both the hospital surgeon and the clinic in how they have dealt with me through this whole process.

I have not had one, but a quick google search yielded similar "lump" stories. Maybe check a few of those?

Thanks, Elnoa. I kind of figured they were saying they never heard of this to cover their asses. My former-RN mother said my thing is very common in the sterilization patients she had taken care of ... it's usually a hernia. (Although I don't have any pain.) Just irks me that I came out of surgery in worse shape than when I went in. And that they're dragging their feet about getting it looked at for sure.

I didn't have any complications with the surgery its self but my sister did have something similar and it was exactly that - a hernia. I don't remember her having any major or lingering issues after taking care of it though.

Honey, I'm so sorry you're having complications. IMO, in the richest country in the world we can do better for our people, medically speaking, than our country is doing at the moment. It makes me very angry that people can't get quality health care, while the upper 10% gets more quality medical care than anyone needs.

I have no idea what it could be, I can't even guess. An umbilical hernia maybe? But, I can't say at all.

I hope they find out what the problem is soon, (and I doubt it "unprecedented" maybe that doctor has never seen it, but is is nearly a statical impossibility for much of anything medical to be "unprecedented." )

I hope you heal quickly and the lump resolves.
