In brief: Redness

Redness could be a sign of infection in the foot, particularly if the circulation is not normal.
His foot swelling should be treated by keeping the foot elevated. You should check with his surgeon or whoever is on call for his surgeon. I expect that he should be staying off of his feet as much as possible, and keeping his foot elevated.
