Probably not: Stitches are used in strabismus surgery. Sometimes, these take quite a while to dissolve with some redness. Occasionally, a small non-infectious lesion called a granuloma can form around the stitch and sometimes needs to be removed.

It can: If your diabetes is poorly controlled, the excessive sugar in your blood damages your kidneys and nerves, particularly the nerves in your legs. The damage to your kidneys can result in low back pain and the damage to the nerves in your legs can cause the tingling in your feet you're describing. In general, the foot tingling is much more common than the lower back pain.

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.
