Severe abdominal pain, nausea for months. History of hernia repair. CT scan done

I've been having sever abdominal pain and nausea for several months. October 1 hernia repair. Still pain. Loosing weight. Ct was done on the 18th with contrast. Findings was subcutaneous fluid collection deep to the anterior midline incision measuring approximately 2.4 x 4.0 cm transverse, 8mm deep to the skin surface. Could represent abscess, seroma or hematoma. Also there are several subcentimeter lymph nodes in the upper abdomen, possibly reactive. Please help. I'm tired of being in pain.

Hi, it appears that you have some nasocomial infection, of the sutures of the abdomen, or a leakage of blood and became an abscess with collection of pus.
You may need to have incision and drainage of the pus, with a plug in the dressing. So i advise you to consult your operating doctor. Thank you.
