Painful bumps on the inner lower butt cheek with a painful lymph node in my groin area.

You should follow up with your surgeon or family doctor who can examine you in person and give you an accurate diagnosis. The earlier you get evaluated and treated the better.
An exam is needed to determine what is going on with your skin
and you should see your regular doctor to start with. It sounds like you could have hidradenitis suppurtiva but an exam is really needed to confirm this.
Bumps and boils?
Thanks for this question. If you recently had a TT, then a reactive lymph node is normal and can resolve when the inflammation gets better. Boils on your skin, even in an area far away from the tummy tuck, is a different matter and should be evaluated by your plastic surgeon ASAP. Best wishes, Dr. ALDO
