HI racharya,

  I think that you are getting an infection. You need to see your doctor, dear.

Try again to speak with the MD or perhaps the nurse. Did you speak with the doctor or did you get a message from the receptionist? Sometimes the office staff does not always pass along all information. Try again and insist this time.

Thank you for your question. I would recommend calling your physicians office again and requesting to be seen in person. It is always best to address these types of concerns in person so that your physician can evaluate you. If his office does not schedule you an appointment, you may need to seek a second opinion from another Plastic Surgeon. Good Luck!
