If you were my patient I would want to see you immediately to help address these concerns.
You should never feel bad about contacting your doctor, no matter how busy they seem.
You may be having a reaction to the sutures on the inside, which may be trying to poke through. Or perhaps the wound is opening up. It's difficult to say for sure without seeing the area in person. I would get in touch with your physician who can help you with the next best steps.
