Our expert says:
Such a scar can be tender for up to 18 mo after an operation. However, the bump and redness could signify infection - let your GP just have a look at the area. I'll wait at least 6 months before getting pregnant as the area needs time to grow strong tissue first - otherwise you are just going to develop another hernia and have to go through all this again!
