It still hurt me to laugh/cough 2 weeks after surgery... I also had tender areas come and go during this time... I had bumps under/near most all of the incision points for quite awhile... I didn't follow lifting instructions too carefully and thought I had herniated every thing... The bumps were explained to me as being scar tissue of fat which makes hard lumps and they graduyally dissipated and went away after 4-6 months.
Anyway, as Cedar suggests, if anything is worrying or bothering you caqll your doctor/nurse... that's what all the big bucks we (or insurance) paid for the operation was for...
