I had my hematoma drained......
« on: December 22, 2006, 08:42:31 PM »
and there ws this hard area in my chest, almost like a saucer around were the blood collected. The doctor said is the bodies response to the hematoma and it will go away. Does anyone have any experience with this? I also was able to squeeze out more old blood the next day. Is it bad to do this on my own or should I leave it alone? I didn't reopen the incision that he made, the blood comes out on its own.

Thank again forum!

I haven't had mine drained but i think I do feel a bit of a hard saucer shape underneath the nipple. Did he say what the saucer was? Like a kind of scar.. etc.?

He only said thats you bodies response to the hematoma and it will go away. I have the same concern, if its scar tissue its going to be hard to get rid of it. How soon before we can start massage?

If you are never drained, what happens to the blood?
