Had a hysterectomy 10/01/03. Had no problems with wound healing, but have now found three "lumps", middle and on both sides, of wound. My G.P. says it may be knots from inner stitches that have not dissolved. Please advise as my gynea is on holiday.

It may well be undissolved stitches, or just scar tissue. Wounds heal in different ways. Unless the lumps are painful or discharging, wait till your gynaecologist comes back to check them.
