Does my dogs spay incision look normal?

My dog was spayed 11 days ago, the incision is longer then usual as we were told she had pcos and so the surgery was more complicated. She had her stitches taken out today and as she’s my first dog I don’t know what to expect but it looks quite red and lumpy. The vet that saw her didn’t say anything about it looking bad and said we can take off the surgical suit she’s been wearing tomorrow and no longer need a cone. I was expecting it to look more healed than it currently looks but don’t know if I’m just being overly worried.

It just looks a little irritated, probably from having the stitches removed just prior.
If there is no swelling and discharge it is fine. It all should get better in the next few days.

She looks like she's still swollen. You should see that go down in the next few days to a week. If it doesn't, I'd have her go in for a re-check.
