Anesthesia: Since you state you are taking any medications since your surgery you may still be having a reaction to anesthetics and you possibly received antibiotics intravenously and you may be having a reaction to that. Talk to your surgeon. Always a possibility this has no relationship to the surgery and may need to be evaluated by your medical provider. Good luck

Follow up w/ surgeon: Potential reaction to agent used during surg. vs. surgical complication; need to follow up with your surgeon ASAP.
