Hi, Dr. Stan here to help. It sounds like you have an incisional hernia that has become infected. Go to an Urgent Care Center now for evaluation. You could develop sepsis (infection in your blood stream). I am here to answer any additional questions you may have. Please leave a positive rating of 3-5 stars. This is how I am credited for my response. Thank you and feel better soon.
