I need some advice...

Hi, I had a breast reduction 15 weeks ago, 2 weeks ago I started experiencing pain in both breasts, swollen lymph nodes and a swollen rib. My surgeon doesn't know what could be causing these symptoms. Today my pain has become unbearable, cant lift/use arms and my left incision has become swollen/red and feels like it its pulling apart.
Do you think I should call the hospital? Call the Surgeon? or go to the ER?
Any advice would be great, Thanks :)

Hi my advice would be to contact your doctor straight away. If you cannot contact him then take yourself to ER. Sounds like you have an infection so the sooner you get antibiotics the better
