Could be a hernia

Sort to hear you are having difficulty after surgery. You should followup with your surgeon. Your symptoms could be due to a range of issues from a pali cation suture tearing, Seroma formation. To a hernia. You would need a physical exam and possibly even radiologic imaging to sort this out.
