Non-cancerous mass removed from the groin area. Swelling and feeling lump. Should I be concerned?

I had a non cancerous mass removed from my groin area near lymph nodes 10 days ago. I am swollen and feel a hard lump underneath. below the stitches are short brown curved lines and I am numb in that area. both legs feel like sand bags and I am exhausted. I called my Dr.s office last Friday to see if I can come in for follow up before the scheduled May 3 date and they said my Dr. is on vacation. Should I be concerned?

welcome to health care magic
In the query you didn't mention about the mass which was removed..was it a lymph node/hematoma/cyst.?
regarding that groin area,,most common mass that arises is hernia....usually hernia contains either intestines or bladder or needs surgical correction of underlying abdominal wall rather than removal..

Regarding the sutures and numbness,,sutured area means that small place of cutaneous nerves are cut..
and you get back to normal with in need to worry about this numbness...

hope you get answer from me..
consult your dr for more suggestions..
Thank you
