Chrishu,

In most cases no need to worry, however you need to keep trying the hospital, if you've had no joy today, get down to the ey casualty.

Far safer to take time out to be told you are OK than wake up one morning with problems that could have been avoided.

As I have posted many times before;

IF IN DOUBT GET IT CHECKED OUT

I had a tiny white bit, which was mucous collecting on a loose stitch but this was about 1yr post graft. As Gareth says get this checked out, you cannot be too careful.
