dicharge from areola when compressed
« on: April 20, 2012, 02:40:38 PM »
am 8 days post-op.. I got my stitches removed by a physician today.. i had some pain when he was removing stitches.. not sure if he removed them properly.
I am wearing compression vest now.. I am seeing a little bit of dicharge from areola.. it's not that much but i can see some stain in compression vest whenever i open it.. is it an indication of infection?

Not unusual for there to be a little "weeping" from the wound.  If there is undue swelling, redness, tenderness, then it might be a good idea to check it out with your surgeon.
