I had surgery 3 weeks ago. I feel much better overall but I sometimes experience pain where they took out a benign tumor. I also have strange vibrations in the area. Somewhat like nerve endings vibrating (perhaps where they cut through the skin?). It comes and goes. Has anyone else experienced such things or do you think it is abnormal?

I think the "vibrations" are the nerve starting to re-grow. I had what I called twinges after a big surgery - it went away after a while, maybe a few months. If concerned, call your surgeon's office and talk to them.

It's not abnormal. Nerves were severed. I've had both numbness and pain after surgery. Sounds contradictory but it's real. After a cholecystectomy it took over two years for the numbness to wear off and I had ocassional twinges of pain for at least as long.

I have heard of this before. But it were me, I would give the nurse at the surgeons office/docs office a quick call, and let them know what your feeling. Its probably just nerves regrowing or recovering from the procedure- but its best to let them know about it.

Thanks all. Just never had surgery before and Drs just don't tell you. I probably will check to be sure, but a couple of other people told me that it just takes awhile to heal and nerve endings do apprarently react.. which makes sense.
