Recurring hernia ?

Posted , 2 users are following.

A couple of weeks ago I posted about possible fluid building up six months after a hernia repair (para umbilical). I now think it's not fluid, but a failed repair and a new hernia.

I was confused because the original hernia was a hard lump that couldn't be pressed back, and the new one is very soft and squishy. I seem to be able to push it back in but it immediately comes out again - almost like liquid. does anyone know why it would be so different ?

I'm delaying going to the doctors because I'm terrified of having another operation.
