Welcome to healthcare Magic!
Needle drainage is not a recommendable choice for a swelling appearing after the repair of hernia.
It is a great satisfaction that the lymph nodes were found negative for mitosis.
You should get an ultrasound of the area to know the source of this swelling and also review to a surgeon for second opinion at the earliest and follow the advice to be planned accordingly.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
Take Care!
