I have umbilical hernia. Surgery on Tuesday. It's causing me lot of pain, but lactic acid test came back normal. No fever. Will I be ok until Tuesday?

Probably normal. But without being able to exam you or ask more questions I can't say for sure if you can wait until next week. Lactic acid alone doesn't tell me much. How much pain? Is it getting better? Is there drainage? Redness? Are you eating and drinking ok? Was it an open or lap hernia repair? Call your surgeon's office if in doubt and def keep your appointment.

I had umbilical hernia surgery on oct 15 2012. I am having constant discharge of blood with a foul smell ever since then. Dr. Says this is normal?

No. Although some patients may have some initial bloody discharge, persistent drainage should be investigated, particularly if foul smelling. Your surgeon should re-examine you in the office. Read more...
Not normal. Sound like an infected collection of blood under the skin, called a hematoma. Usually the treatment is to open the wound an let it heal by itself from the bottom up. If there is mesh placed on top of the abdominal wall, this may be ok to leave alone, or could require removal. See you surgeon for an exam again. If you are still skeptical, see your primary care.
