Our expert says:
Maggie, I would go with what the physician said. If it’s just fluid it is called a seroma and it’s a fairly common complication after an operation. The fluid is just what’s left of a collection of blood and it can take more than 3 months to be absorbed. As long as you leave it in peace, nothing can happen. Opening it or sticking a needle in it may cause sepsis and that it something you definitely don’t want. If it doesn’t start going away within the next 2 months, you can always have it operated on – no harm done. Good luck.
