Your surgical wounds, likely with laparoscopic surgeries, should be healed well at this time (more than 7 months after the surgery). Redness and swelling of the previous incisions, supposedly scars by this time, is quite abnormal. I wonder because of the pain so you cannot strain with bowel movement. You should see a doctor, preferably the doctor who did the surgeries, ASAP.
