I had umbilical hernia surgery 4 weeks ago. I now have a hard lump in the area of the belly button/just above. Second repair with mesh. Is this normal?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: It is probably

healing or edge of mesh at this stage, recurrence or infection is unlikely.
Show it to your surgeon, just to be sure.
