How are you? I recommend that you consult your doctor as soon as possible for further evaluation. This could be an infection or possible recurrence. A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine concluded that mesh is more effective than stitches in repairing hernias. But the likelihood of hernia recurrence after both methods is fairly high.
