In brief: Worsening of surgery

Best to see the surgeon today or as soon as possible as the infection may be worsening.

Urgent issue must be dealt with do not delay.
See your surgeon immediately and got to the ER, you may have an infection or an abscess and this should be dealt with immediately as an emergency. Watch for discoloration of your foot such as bluish color in the toes which may mean blood flow is compromised but get this seen to immediately in the ER.
