I had open inguinal hernia surgery a few days ago, i noticed a lot of swelling at and around the incision, is this normal, what causes this, how long should it last and what could I do to reduce it.

Alternatively, you may have developed a recurrent hernia. I suggest you return to see your hernia surgeon or seek out a second opinion--this is easily resolved by a careful hernia exam. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
