Post hernia repair?

I feel slightly puffy on one side where the double inguinal hernia surgery was done about 2 years ago. Looks the same as it always has and I do not feel any hernia. May have stretched the mesh slightly lifting. Will the mesh if it is slightly stretched re heal itself to the skin tissue?

You have adhesions and scar tissue. Try topical steroids twice a day for 6-8 weeks.
Possible. See your surgeon
