Slept through alarm so scrambled to get to my 8.30 appointment no brekky so expecting to faint but I did not so very proud of myself as it took a lot of goes.
360 millilitres fluid was successfully drained from the seroma that has formed where the disease lymph nodes were removed in emergency surgery two weeks ago.
It felt such a relief as, although I am largely numb in that area it felt solid pressure and I was anxious it would press out through my scar last night as had turned blue.
They were unable to remove all the fluid to get it ‘dry’ as my body has already started to heal itself and developed fibrous bands creating pockets which they could not access even although using ultrasound to guide needles in.
