I had open hernia repair about a year ago. The surgery went well and healed quickly. Have had no problems since. In the last few days I have developed a red "blister" the size of a dime right on the scar. It is very sore and is spongy just like a blister is. It's not a boil or zit it is definately filled with fluid. Should I wait and see if it goes away or pay the co-pay and get to Doctor?
