If : If you are noticing a new bulge in the "stomach" you could have a recurrence again of your hernia. The best test to find this out is a ct scan.

See your surgeon: If the problem is discomfort, it may not be related to the hernia, rather scar tissue. If you think the hernia is back, see a surgeon with experience in abdominal wall reconstruction, including perforator soaring techniques for "component separation". Not sure what you need however without a complete evaluation - history, exam, review old records and ct scans.
