Thanks for writing to us.
The bulging out of the muscle while working out is suggestive of a herniation of the muscle mass from the site of stitches. A surgical repair may be required to take care of any further complications.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Rest assured - it is unlikely to fatal, after one year!
If there is no fever, pain, deformity or restriction of movement, it can not be serious...
It may not be liquid? / It may not be related to the past incident / only investigations can shed light.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
