How long do incisions ooze?
This is such a trivial thing, but I’m asking because I couldn’t find this topic by searching and perhaps others after me will wonder about this, too.
It’s been nearly three weeks since my partial mastectomies with breast lift/reductions and there is the tiniest amount of oozing still coming from the incisions. Just enough to cause the gauze to stick after an hour or two of the pad being in place.
In the shower, I let the gauze get wet so it pulls away more easily, but I do still have to tug a bit to remove the gauze,
I was thinking today it will be nice when nothing sticks, and wondered if anyone here could share their experience with this.,
My hope is the oozing might stop in another week, but perhaps that is not realistic?
Thank you all so much!
