When should you call your child's healthcare provider?

You may notice some minor swelling around the incision. This is normal. However, call your healthcare provider if your child develops:

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