Here are some ...: Without additional info, I would not jump to draw conclusion to concern what was visualized on US imaging at the time of one month after right inguinal herniorrhaphy. At least, give additional 1-2 months for watching and following the expected further postsurgical wound resolution before prematurely assuming something as long as slowly but surely getting better day by day.
