Suggest treatment for recurring seromas
Infections and hernia are possibilities ma'am
Hello ma'am and welcome.
Thank you for writing to us.
I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help. I should rightfully start by informing you that seromas, and especially recurrent seromas after surgery can make the surgical site susceptible to infection and structural breakdown of the site.
That being said, the symptoms of an infection are severe pain (something your doctor should be looking out for), fever, increased heart rate, etc. Either way, the best approach to treatment would be the surgical approach including excavation, debridement, drainage and adequate irrigation of the surgical site.
Of course, other than infections we should also adequately rule out possible herniation due to the surgery conducted, but this can also be addressed if found during the surgical excavation. So it would be wise to go ahead with the surgical procedure at the earliest, as I understand how the pain you are experiencing can be excruciating and highly frustrating.
I hope you find my response helpful. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications, I would be more than happy to help you.
Just the pain needs to be addressed
Hello once again ma'am.
I completely understand ma'am, but you should know that there could be various causes for the pain and your doctor will have to look into this. Causes can include iatrogenic injury to blood vessels, possible infection, fistula formation, compression by surgical site onto surrounding blood vessels, etc. Your doctor will have to pay attention to this symptom and address it accordingly.
We would not want to pain to continue to persist even after corrective surgery this time, because if at all it is then another procedure might be warranted. So please make sure you tell your doctor that you need the pain to be adequately addressed this time.
As for the hernia, it should have been visualized on the CT scans and ultrasound investigations conducted, no matter how deep-seated it is. So we can almost completely rule out hernias thanks to the CT scans and ultrasound investigations.
Other than this, there is nothing of much importance right now. A patient in pain is one we have not completely treated, so your pain should disappear after the upcoming surgical procedure, so my only suggestion to you is to make it very clear to your doctor that the pain needs to be addressed.
I hope and pray for your complete recovery. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications, I would be more than happy to help you.
