What are the signs to look for on a bone graft surgery of the scaphoid bone fixture with a screw to know if it needs medical attention right away?

In brief: Redness or drainage

Any sign of infection is reason to be seen right away by the surgeon.
After the incision has healed and a few months have past, persistant pain or mechanical symptoms can mean failure of fixation. In either of these cases, return to your surgeon for evaluation.
