Dear friend, does he have ongoing fever, nausea/ vomitting?
or just pain?
difficult to say from this breif description,
pain could be due to ongoing inflammation beneath, or scar pain.
better you consult the operating surgeon in person, as distant advice is not possible
thanks for being at HCM.
good luck
