is it swollen? red? oozing? do you have a fever? if so, go STRAIGHT to your doc. if it's not, just CALL your doc and ask about it.
sometimes healing hurts [wish it didn't] but sometimes infections set in. only your doc can tell you.
and now, i gotta wave a flag here. You've had the surgery as a step in taking better care of yourself. None of us - not a single one of us - is good at that. calling your doc about these issues is one step in taking better care of yourself.
while it's good that you've asked us, the fact is that we're not doctors, and we don't know what the incision looks like. Only your doc can help you on this one. Please call. I promise you - someone is covering today, even though it's saturday.
if you have the symptoms i wrote above, you could also consider the ER, but call your doc first. There's also the possibility of going to an urgent care center.
take care of this early this morning. and then let us know how you're doing.
Start your day with a smile, and get it over with.
Keeping it off is a hundred decisions a day that help you maintain what you achieved. And that's the hard part. - L Sanders
