When to call your child's health care provider

You may notice some minor swelling around the incision; this is normal. However, call your health care provider if your child develops:

  • Fever
  • Vomiting
  • Excessive swelling, redness, or drainage from the incision
  • Bleeding
  • Increasing pain
