Post surgery concerns
You need to go to the nearest emergency room for care. Contact your surgeon to let him/her know the situation. Do not ignore these symptoms. You need to seek treatment.
Seek Medical Attention Immmediately
You potentially have an infection which requires antibiotics and possibly removal of the implant. The longer you wait, the more difficult it may be to solve the problem with only antibiotics.
