Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER. After any surgical procedure, it's important to follow directions given to you by the surgeon. Normally it's normal to experience tenderness, soreness, tingling, itching, numbness, bruising and a small lump may form around the incision. Any green or yellow, increasing odor, change of size in the incision, redness are all signs of an infection. If you are concerned it might be best to let your doctor or nurse know what you are seeing. Hope this was helpful?
