Hernias at the surgical sites (whether open or robotic) are fairly common. Typically, they are classified as incisional hernias. The bulge should be reducible (can be pushed back into place with some finger pressure). If it's not reducible, it may be a problem and could cause "incarceration" of your bowel. You should have it looked at. I suffer currently from an umbilical hernia in my belly button which is the main laproscopic site during the robotic surgery. It looks very strange and ugly and even 8 months later, has a very small amount of noninfectous fluid leaking on ocassion. I'm going to a surgeon about this too.
