    8 months post-op your incision should be healed. It could be scar tissue or an umbilical hernia if it doesn't go away you should consult with your Dr. hope that helps.

    I agree with the other poster about it possibly being a hernia and about you needing to see a doctor if it persist. But I also want to state that while you're doing your sit-ups you need to be absolutely certain that you're doing them correctly so that you don't injure yourself. Doing sit-ups is an easy way of injuring your lower back. This is how I injured my lower back and now I suffer severe pain and have been on opiates for 13 years because of it. So please be very careful with your setups
