General Surgeon 's  Response

Thank you for the query.

In every place of the skin where there was an incision, scar appears after some time. Such process can last for about a year. During that time the tissues in such areas are getting rebuild so the final scar tissue can be created. Such process can occur as some kind of hardness, however it should not be painful. So if this places are getting also reddish, with some discharge, there might be some pathological process going on. After a month of surgery, it can be a surgical suture which causes inflammatory reaction. It is advisable for you to have that checked by a surgeon. Soft tissues of abdominal wall might be necessary.
Sometimes such symptoms may be caused by hernia in the places where incision where done, but this is very rare after laparoscopy.
If it is above pregnancy, you should get ruled out any mentioned conditions first. After making sure everything is fine, you can plan your pregnancy like there would be no surgery at all.

Hope this will help.
