This was mine, one week post op.  It looked much worse than it felt and was gone by my 3rd week of recovery.

I only had a little bruise where they put the drain in. My incision sites did not bruise. I did bruise a LOT with my IV's. My arms looked like I had been in a fight and lost.

mine was very similar to NewKBear_2010 picture, mostly on the lower part of my stomach and the sides. I figured it was normal.

My stomach was so bruised it took on a blackish tint. I told my husband I thought the skin was dying, but I tend to be a drama queen. When I saw my surgeon post-op he said it was normal and some bruise more than others.

Good luck!!!

Hi I had the DS a week ago and today I randomly got a purple Bruce in my stomach. Is this normal?

I did have some bruising along my incision (ds) right after the surgery, but my arms and legs looked worse. Now, I have bruising along my incision, I am 2 months post surgery and am wondering if I should go to the hospital.
