Groin hernia repaired by laparoscopy. Swelling around the incision persisting. Due to lack of exercise? Need to get checked?

I had a groin hernia repaired laproscopicly 5 weeks ago. I feel better day by day and have been back to doing some light cardio on the treadmill for the past 2 weeks. Sitting around doing little exercise tends to make one fat, but this seems extreme. Is it normal to have swelling around the incisions for 5 weeks afterward, or am I just getting fat from lack of exercise? How long can I expect to have swelling there? Thank you.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Reaction to injury and scar may vary with individuals...may be excessive in some
Give some more time - 2 to 3 weeks.
See your surgeon, if not improving / see him now, if there is pain

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
