See your doctor: This may be a normal amount of clear yellow serous body fluid coming from the surgical site. If there is increasing pain, redness and skin warmth contact your surgeon right away. If you are concerned, please call you surgeon very soon so you can be informed as to what to watch for and what to expect for your own condition.

Responding to med: Should resolve. Stay with bran and fluids, and perhaps some yogurt since you likely had antibiotic at time of surgery.

"Cause," no.: At 130 days it's either a successful fix, or it's not. Pain without bulge is probably related to adhesions more than to hernia recurring.
