Does it look like a very serious infection?

3 days post lipo my right leg drained lots of fluid, left leg none. Its very hard, hot, swollen, painful with boils inside knee.  Does it look like a very serious infection? Should i keep off the compression garment that keeps rubbing on it? I'm taking Cefurixime 500mg twice a day and I've been trying to contact my surgeon all day but no luck getting through to him so far.

If you can't reach your surgeon go see an infectious disease specialist - clearly any complication should not be ignored
