Have Bulge on One Side?
A photo would help, but having gone through this before it sounds like you know what this is. Apparently this is less of disruption than the first time, and it may not be so easy to diagnose, and it may be just swelling. Continue to follow up with your surgeon, and best wishes for an uneventful recovery.
