Thanks for positng your query on HCM.
I have read and understood your concern.
Your description sounds like a incision site infection.I will suggest you see the Doctor to explore the incision site. Regular dressing and antibiotics may help control the infection. You may also take a pain drug like paracetamol foe headache.
Hope this will help.You may write back if more concerns.
Best regards
