In case of bulge appearing again it is most likely hernia coming back. You need to get it examined by your doctor for exact diagnosis so that it can be treated accordingly.

Hope this helps.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
