Wound infection: if you have pain and pus from a surgical wound, it is infected. See your doctor right away.

Rule out infection!: Seek urgent evaluation by your surgical team to thoroughly examine the underlying cause of your pain and wound drainage. A workup looking for infection will likely be started.
