Had abdominal myomectomy, pain in mons pubis while laughing, stretching. Solution?

I had an abdominal myomectomy 1 month ago (a c-section bikini line incision) and the healing seems fine. But I have developed a sharp pain on the left side of my mons pubis when I laugh or stretch, it s intense pain like sciatic nerve pain and only occurs with coughs/laughter/some stretching movements. I would be unsurprised if I had this feeling on or around my incision, by this stabbing pain in my mons is really killing me now. Any idea why this is happening? The incision has healed well with no infection.

Hi and welcome to HCM. Thank you for your query.
There can be few causes. It can be nerve damage during surgery and this isnt uncommon and unfortunately isnt easily treated. Second cause is incisional hernia so do ultrasound to rule this out. Also, it could be subcutaneous infection or abscess formation. WIsh you good health.
