    Hi - I would be getting it checked in case there is an infection of some type. We need to be very careful of infections for quite some time. Err on the side of caution !!  Pleased to hear all is going well otherwise smile

    Go to your Doctor ASAP , may be nothing but get it checked , you don't want an infection . I had my left knee done 18 years ago & all is fine now . Don't worry but get it check out.

    Could be an infection, have your doctor check it out immediately! Don't wait!
