Seroma vs recurrence: 11 weeks after surgery this lump could be a recurrence of the hernia or a seroma(fluid collection )that will resolve on its own if you can push it back it is a hernia..
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.

It worthwhile to have surgeon checked it out with more detailed Hx and physical examination soon.
