I had the robotic surgery done a few months ago and there was a bump above and to the side of the main incision that sometimes is a bit painful when I do lifting etc , I have not been able to see the surgeon yet to ask about it ....does anyone else have any experience like this ? thanks !

I had the same surgery in Febr 06 and did not experience what you are describing. I can report of the five sites of penetation, I healed well with only two very minor, shallow indentions showing, but never any bump, no soreness or discomfort. It was stated to me 'absolutely' no lifting for 6-8 weeks during recovery. Weight at time of surgery was 185 lbs, 6 ft. no flab.

This report of a side effect from surgery is not uncommon given most invasive surgeries, but you should have it checked out by your doctor as soon as possible when dealing with something that could have been left over from your surgery. It could be nothing to worry about or it could be serious. You won't know unless you have it checked by your surgeon. Also there have been some complaint by plaintiffs claiming that the DaVinci Surgical system may be attributed to a number of unneccessary post-surgical injuries that has led to some to file lawsuits against the makers of the device and the surgeon operating it.
