lumpy firm area around surgical incision site
I'm 4 weeks post-op hand surgery for flexor tendon repair & digital nerve repair for the ring finger. I have this lumpy area (quite firm & raised) of prominence around my surgical incision site. I can't make a fist all the way with my ring finger without feeling like a "ball inside in my hand" impeding ROM because of the raised area.
-Is this normal?
-Will this flatten out over time, to a point where I'd be able to make a fist without the ball in hand feeling?
-Is what I have considered hypertrophic or keloid scarring?
All the hand surgery scars I see online are all flat so that's why I'm so concerned because mine is so raised and hard.
