You will be numb for quite awhile as they cut through some nerves when opening you up. You will also have scar tissue building below the incision line, and more so where they tie your internal sutures off. If you are worried about the 2 inch long bump, you should have your doctor check it when you go in for your recheck. Make sure not to do any heaving lifting at all for the first 6-12 weeks or you can cause more scar tissue.
