Fluid pocket in breast hasn’t dissipated after surgery

Posted by jeaniebean @jeaniebean, Aug 2, 2021

I have had a fluid pocket in my right breast after surgery a year ago. I thought it would be gone by now. It doesnt hurt or bother me except that it has a hardened outer area. Everything I have read tells me it would disappate into the body within a year. Anyone have this> Anything I can do??

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Breast Cancer group.

Thank you for looking to connect. We are all patients who have different experiences. I had a fluid pocket for a while from surgery. After about 6 months my doctor went in and removed it as it was starting to be a problem. Have you discussed this with your surgeon?


@jeaniebean , I wanted to check in and see how you were doing. Did the fluid pocket get resolved? How are you feeling?


Dr is a fool. Says he is not sure he should drain anymore and left it at that! I still have the fluid pocket and it is getting harder. Please dont say see another Dr. There are none.


Did he say how that was supposed to get resolved that is a long time to have fluid.
