Had laprascopic hernia operation. Why did I get blisters afterwards?

I had laprascopic hernia operation 4 days ago. I m feeling a little better - walking around more and less pain . I took my bandages off this morning and saw that 3 dime size blisters have developed around the incision areas. They are leaking a yellow like liquid. Again no pain, but is this normal? Is my body rejecting the mesh used in he surgery?

hi two dim sizes blisters around the incision areas can be due excess pressure of the bandages or due to ur rejection towards mesh.first try broad spectrum antibiotic twice daily ,anti inflammatory agent and application of t bact ointment after saline compressors.if still oozing you should reopen the site and remove the mesh and try other alternatives
