It : It sounds like you may be dealing with an infectious process (bacterial, viral). Shingles or herpes zoster is a possibility. Honestly it is very difficult to say without seeing the lesions in question. A visit with your doctor is definitely in order. Good luck.

Could be staph: If there is pain, redness, fever i would be evaluated as soon as possible. It sounds like a cellulitis, or skin infection.

Rash: This can't be diagnosed with the information that is available. A history, physical examination & other studies may be needed to determine cause/causes. Once accurately assessed a treatment plan can be developed.

Do not think so : I am not aware of any connection between celiac disease, which primarily involves gluten intolerance and causes diarrhea, and sciatica. Sciatica is usually caused by edema around this nerve or pinching of the nerve.

Can be normal: Some pain and swelling can be normal at this stage. May take close to 1 full year for complete resolution with good therapy. Signs of metal allergy include persistent pain and swelling, skin rashes, including hives , and x-ray findings of component loosening. A sample of the metal, provided by the implant company, can be taped to your arm to confirm. Ask your surgeon.

Probably unrelated: Abdominal pain and tongue numbness are likely unrelated. Many things can cause right sided abdominal pain, even after gallbladder removal. The most common things that cause tongue numbness is tongue swelling, most commonly due to allergies or poisonings.
