Small lump on stomach on drain scar, pain on touching. Laparotomy done, removed hernia. Treatment?

Hi. I m 26 years old 6ft 3 and slim build.I had 2 hernias removed two weeks ago by open surgery ( simply because I had a laparotomy and they could not do key hole) I am now in the second week of recovery and I have had a pea size lump appear on my left side of my stomach where I had a drain scar . It is in line with my belly button and 5-10 centimetres away from my belly button. This pea size lump is painful when I touch it. And hurts for about 20 seconds afterwards too. Any ideas

Hi, Thanks for query,
It seems that there is infection resulting pus formation giving you this problem.
Consult surgeon who operated the hernia.
They will open up and will drain the pus and will do dressing.
Ok and bye.
