Hi. If there is no fever or redness locally , please do not worry. Since this operation requires extensive dissection, it may have a sequel of hematoma and later seroma formation. Ultrasonography guided aspiration can be done if needed. You must be already under antibiotic cover if your surgeon feels so. Re-view by a Surgeon can tell you whether there is any other problem. Take rest.

HI. Do you mean to say you got operated . This leak is usually a seroma if from the would only. Rarely can be from the fluid of the abdomen. IN either case have a sterile dressing done frequently. Antibiotic cover and rest would heal this in time. The bump can be a recurrence or collection. consult the Surgeon and get a diagnosis and further treatment. Burning will go away with time.

Hi, Thanks for writing in. A seroma of size 3 x 7 x 4 cm in the abdomen is a small one but the fact that it is hardened may not allow it to be aspirated. It is important to know in which plane it is located. I am concerned about you pain and surgical treatment may be necessary if its really painful.
