Healing process : Probably relate to the the healing process. Doesn't sound dangerous. If it persists and limits your activity, or gets worse, see your surgeon again. If no answers, consider a second opinion from a general surgeon with experience in hernia repair. Check the americas hernia society website to find surgeons that are members. Whole this is no guarantee of quality, it demonstrates some interest.
