User avatar Dear Lilmtlady,

What this could be is a hernia at the site of the surgery. So, you should see your surgeon.

After 3 months and with the recent onset of symptoms, i doubt that this could be an infection.

Thank you very much for using our website and i hope that this information helped.

Yasser Mokhtar, M.D.
