Hair implants are 2 months post-op. I feel hard nodules where the scabs used to be, and when I rub them it hurts. (photo)

If you have bumps that hurt when you touch it, it is best to contact your doctor for an examination.
Hard nodules in recipient area
It is unusual to have problems with the recipient area 2 months post -op. Stiches are not used to transplant the grafts themselves, so it is unlikely that is what you are pulling out of the scalp. At any rate, you definitely should return to the physician who performed your transplant to discuss your concerns and issues.

The hair coming out when you shower is normal. But the hard nodules might be possible inflammation and might require medication. I would suggest you book an appointment with your doctor to take a look.
