User :   Hi! I am 25 years old. I had my first c-section 1 year back. the wound got infected and the reason i was told was that my body rejected the self absorbable thread that was used. the wound was dressed for 3 weeks. two months later the wound still started oozing. the dressing continued. last february i had to get a surgery done as a track was formed inside. two months after this second surgery, there was pain above the scar. the doctor said there was puss accummulation and drained it. Its been 3 months since the puss was drained and still the wound hasnot healed. In the mean while i was put on AKT 4. Nothing seems to be working. I need help...
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   Dr XXX here
User :   Hi Dr. XXX
Doctor :   Let me read what you have typed
User :   sure
Doctor :   Is the pus still oozing out?
User :   yes. it is more like a watery fluid than puss
Doctor :   What is the colour of the pus? Is it foul smelling?
User :   no its not smelly. it looks watery to me
Doctor :   Most probably it is a serous fluid.
Doctor :   You need to increase your protein intake in diet to prevent this and also help in healing.
Doctor :   Serous fluid is a body fluid which is present in body cavities and is benign in nature.
Doctor :   Have you followed what i said?
