Incision feels like gristle??? Rumple Foreskin 3 kids; Kentucky 47763 posts

I had a c-section 3 1/2 months ago....and everything has gone fine and dandy and healed nicely...

But about 2 inches above my scar on my right side, it feels like a piece of chicken gristle or something under the skin....I thought maybe for a while it was some undissolved stitches, but I can feel the incision behind the scar, and this is about 2 inches above that, and I know my uterus isn't that high. It doesn't hurt, it's just weird feeling when I run my fingers across it. Has anyone experienced anything like this or have any idea what it could be???

I'd think scar tissue.

Would the scar tissue be so far away from the incision though?


Does it get better? Or at least, slightly less prominent? LOL.

I just had a c section two weeks ago and I have that above my incision as well, so I think it might be normal, i dunno.

I had to have m "gristle" removed because it was on a nerve but it seems to be normal. as long as it is not causing any pain its fine. Plus having it removed is like having the c section all over again...
