Although I had no complaint of shortness of breath.

Well from what you are describing and from the picture it looks like the bruising is certainly from the surgery and given that a CT scan was done yesterday which showed no major issues then the expansion of the swelling and the bruising can be from a minor blood vessel inside the soft tissue which is bleeding. This can sometimes happen after surgery and usually no intervention is undertaken unless the problem worsens over the next 2-3 days. For example if the bruising expands to cover almost all of the right side of your abdomen and extends down into the groin or the thigh area then you may need to go back in and get a MRI done. In addition in that situation they may do a small procedure to locate the bleeding vessel and try to cauterize the bleeding vessel.

However in most cases, we would wait and observe the situation. I have compared both the pictures from before the ER visit and afterwards, there is an increase in the amount of bruising however it is NOT significant enough to be worried just yet. You can continue to apply heat on the area for 10-15 mins at a time upto 5 times a day. The small area of bleeding HOWEVER has to be covered with application of dermabond again or with a sterile bandage which would need to be changed on a daily basis.

The CT scan report is helpful as it has ruled out any SERIOUS issue insid ethe abdominal wall such as an infection. A hematoma (a collection of blood) and edema (Swelling) would usually resolve within 2-3 weeks after surgery, It MAY increase in size somewhat after a week or so however it WILL settle down. You just need to watch out for spread of the bruising in the manner that i described above.

But at the moment i would not worry about this at all.

Do you have any more questions?

With that being said, what about lifting and activities. My husband works out of state and have my 3 mths old to carry and have to travel 9 hr trip one way for executor of an estate of my deceased great-grandmother
Customer reply replied 24 days ago
Currently am under a tremendous amount of stress due to the probate and all these complications this is been ongoing throughout my whole pregnancy which was why I had to wait so long for the tubal was because I had to make sure that I can get my blood pressure under control
Customer reply replied 24 days ago
My preeclampsia was extremely severe

I would avoid lifting weights for the next 2 weeks and placing any strain on the abdomen. You can certainly travel for 9 hours however. You can lift your 3 month old for short periods of time which means less than 15-20 mins at a time. I would not place too much strain on your body given your pre eclampsia and recent control of the blood pressure. But dont lift weights greater than 15-20 pounds and if you do lift weights. you should take these precautions for the next 2 weeks.
