Oozing/discharge after surgery: how much for how long?

Postby ttt2018 » 01 May 2019, 13:00

Have any of you experienced oozing/discharge (mucous/liquid) long after your surgery? If so, for how long, and did it finally go away OK?

I'm still experiencing this 6 weeks after fistulectomy for superficial fistula. Doctors have said it is normal and not infected, and that the oozing could continue till it's fully healed. However, I am quite fearful it indicates a new abscess, since it is fairly constant and does not seem to be improving. I have no other symptoms to indicate an abscess, but it's a very similar pattern to the previous time.

Thanks.

I'm responding to my own post to report that this was normal wound healing and not an infection. The fibrin oozing continued until about week 11 post-op, without ever decreasing much, and then ended fairly abruptly around week 12.

Thank you very much for updating your situation. When people are searching oozing and discharge now, they will have both your issue and your outcome.
