Danger of infection from facelift

I had a mini-facelift and there is an inflammation by one of my ears at the jaw line.  The surgeon started me on a z-pack and then added Levaquin (both at the same time.)  I know that you are never supposed to get infections with a pacemaker.  If this doesn't subside, what will happen to me and what should I do?  The f/l is great but this is scary.

Seems to me you should check with your cardiologist.  

Perhaps a pacemaker wearer will read and add some value.  Your subject doesn't connect will with your question.  If you don't get any help you might want to try a subject more to the experience of this community, such as:  Danger of infection and pacemakers

You should definitely call your cardiologist and tell him what is going on and what medications you are taking.   Good luck.
