Thanks for posting your query.
The numbness may be acceptable and resolves slowly over two three month's time. It is caused due to the nerve branches injuries during surgery and gets better with time. But the new onset redness and burning is alarming if it is significant and increasing.
It may be denoting some problem with the surgery or an infection.
You need to see the surgeon and get a local examination for this.
Hope I have answered your query.
