Years ago and they said it was just scarring.
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 1 year ago.
I think that you should be seen again as this may indicate a possible recurrence of the hernia which may require a redo of the surgery that you had.I would, therefore, strongly recommend that you be seen again by your surgeon.Let me know if you have more questions.Please rate me by clicking on one of the rating options (stars) at your end.Kindest regards
