Hello. Asha_rani lets wait for the doctors to help and guide


Difficult for us to comment anything without examining her and understanding why it happens. I suggest, the best solution would be to meet the doctor who operated and take his / her opinion. For all you know, it might be a minor issue and may settle down with some medicines.

Looks like surgical related issue and the best person would be to seek your surgeons advice and get it treated.
