Dear Beth,
I am so sorry to hear of your ectopic pregnancy and loss,
Unfortunately I am not medically trained so cannot give you specific advice on your symptoms. It is possible that a lump behind a surgical cut, could be a sign of infection and I would advise speaking to your GP.
Sending much love,

Because they have punctured the connective tissue due to their entry, a small hernia may have developed. I have that. I’m 9 weeks post.
Best to get it checked out by your doc tho as everyone’s different.
Sending love. It gets easier and tummy looks less weird each week x x x
