Careful observation needed
After any surgery it is important to have an evaluation whenever there is something unusual or out of the ordinary. Hardness is common and normal, but redness or pain are problems that need addressing directly after a surgery. Infections can happen after any surgery and redness is a common characteristic of an infection. Further evaluation by a surgeon is the best course of action.
