Had oral cancer, jaw removed, titanium plate planted, drainage under shin. Prognosis?

My husband had oral cancer and had 2 of his jaw bone removed. A titanium plate was implanted and now he s having some drainage under his chin . His Dr said there s a chance this drainage could be from the Radiation , which he finished a week ago last Wednesday, or it could be that his body is rejecting the plate. Dr. said to wait 4 weeks to see what transpires. What is your prognosis?
