Hello, leg trauma and surgery cannot be guessed from history but for sure you don't show any nerve problems to me. Fever and pain are both associated. Excess pain may give rise to fever associated with swelling. Red spot may be some local allergic reaction, not to worry. My suggestion would be get in consultation with your primary surgeon or else mail me all old records. Thank you
