Abscess on surgical site developed & experienced pain over on of my insicisons. How serious is this & could the infection spread to my bone ?

I had foot surgery 6 weeks ago. Over the past 4 days, I have experienced pain over on of my insicisons. Redness appeared around it and it became more tender. i took a bath today, and when i got out, there was a lump on the foot. I pressed down and a good amount of pus came out of it. How serious is this ? Could the infection spread to my bone ?

You should consult the doctor who has operated you, since a good amount of infection is there, which can spread very fast & worsen your problems
Take care
