Laparoscopic hernia repair post op bulge

I had a laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair done one week ago. The surgery went well and I've been recovering at home. Before the surgery I noticed that when the hernia would bulge out, I would just gently push it back into my abdomen and it would not bother me anymore. The strange thing is immediately after surgery I noticed that the same bulge that I had before the surgery, was still there, but now it seems larger and it has come down inside my scrotum. It doesn't hurt and it doesn't look like a bruise. It feels like a mass of fat like tissue that has been left out of the abdominal region. I need help intrying to figure this out. Thanks

Re: Laparoscopic hernia repair post op bulge

it sounds to me like a second hernia.
my wife had another hernia appear, after abdominal surgery.
