Normal : While many are symptom free by now, some patient ms experience prolongation of the recovery period. Doesn't sound bad, and should pass with time. If you think something is wrong however, call your surgeon.

Get checked: The signs of a wound infection are redness, pain, swelling and drainage. Your surgeon can help determine if this is a wound infection.
