Yes, swelling after groin hernia surgery is common. Okay to ice, apply pressure and rest. Okay to check in with your surgery team. Make a post operative appointment.

Ridge, which will persist for several months. It is a normal part of healing process. Show it to your surgeon just to make sure.

As tissue heals, it can become swollen and hard for up to 6 weeks post-operatively. Give it time. Make sure you keep your post-operative appointment.
