Brief Answer: observe , it should resolve Detailed Answer: Hi jcpopcorn, Welcome to healthcare Magic! Slight pain and oozing can be there during the revovery period of such major surgeries due to large tissue handling. Heavy weights lifting is to be strictly avoided. Abdominal distension is unacceptable, if it persists or you get vomiting then consulting the surgeon must be done. I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you. Take Care!
