Had abdominal surgery for bladder. Painful bleeding from the incision site. Reason?

several years ago I had a lengthy abdominal surgery for bladder and female problems. I am overweight and they put the incision in where a fold in my skin is. I haven't had any problems until lately and now it is very painful and red and sometimes bleeding, like it is coming through the skin. I have a drs. appt. but it is a month off and it is extremely painful, do you have an opinion on this. Thank you.

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for choosing H.C.M.Forum.
You had an operation on bladder, and female problem long ago. Now the incision is very pain full, red and some times it is bleeding. It appears that some thing is coming out through the skin.
There is no relation to the surgery done long back, It may be due to the herniation of the underlying structures into the incision, due to weakness of the wall under the sutures.
Or it may be due to infection of the structures under the sutures. It may be the reinfection of the previous medical condition.
Before you meet your doctor, i advise you to consult a nearby doctor for temporary relief. If there is any emergency appoint ment channel you can consult them to prevent strangulation hernia, or burst of the swelling.
wishing for a quick and comfirtable recovery.
Best regards.
