Do I have an infection?
A wound infection or an infection at the site of surgery. Increased pain may be the first symptom you feel. The amount of pain is usually a significant increase and not the typical post op pain. You can also look for foul smelling drainage, increased swelling, or redness. A mild elevation in temperature does not mean that you have an infection. However we ask that you look at the wound if you're concerned about an infection, please don't hesitate to contact us immediately for appropriate treatment.
