Brief Answer: May be an infection. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for using Healthcare Magic. It is early after the operation and your tissues will still be somewhat inflamed. This may be the cause of the pain. However, there is a possibility that you may have an infection. Therefore, I suggest you see your doctor to be sure this is not an infection. I hope this is of help to you. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Regards, Dr K A Pottinger, MBChB. FRCA.
