Surgery wound weeping?



Recommended Posts

Almost 2 weeks post switch surgery and also removed 7 year old band.

Lowest of 6 arthroscopic wounds will not stop weeping clear red tinted Fluid. Went to Dr and said was normal and would eventually stop. Doesn’t appear infected. Told to keep it covered with bandage till stops.

Anyone have experience with this?

I had one that would leak when I was more active. I’d watch for spreading redness around the incision, otherwise it should heal up soon. Mine only lasted about 3 weeks I think?

One of my incisions wasn't healing, so sent the doctor a photo, also had my friend, who is a nurse look at it and everyone said it's not infected. The doctor told me the wound opened and it would have to heal from the inside out so would take two more weeks to heal. This was at my two week post op video chat. So, a total of 4 weeks to heal. He told me to keep it clean, apply Neosporin and cover only when I was going out . I'm at 4 weeks now and it's much better but I'm still following his instructions for another week. Oh, and no swimming or pools etc.
