At 5 days out, don’t be too concerned with how your abdomen looks right now. With ileus which is not uncommon (intestines on strike), the abdomen is bloated and it is common to have swelling in the muscles that the surgical approach needs to go through, making a “lumpy” appearance. If in 6-8 weeks, the abdomen does not look normal, we can talk then.
