You should seek care soon to determine the cause of the bulge and the pain. I have had five hernia surgeries
and the last one in December, only one hernia
showed up in the scan, but he felt around while he had me open and found four more. I'm having the same pain again and there is a possibility that I have herniated at the base of the mesh. If you do have a hernia, ask them to mesh it, because depending on your age and weight, the repair won't hold without the mesh.
