Should I Have a Drain Reinserted to Resolve a Seroma or Continue with Serial Aspiration?
I had a tummy tuck two weeks ago and I've developed a seroma. The first time I had the seroma drained (3 days ago) it was 360 cc. Today it was 420 cc. My doctor wants to reinsert the drain tube. I don't want to do that! Is it possible that with continued serial aspirations the seroma will resolve or with the volume of fluid I've had, is a drain tube the best option? I REALLY do not want a drain reinserted. I had a drain for 8 days after the surgery and still developed seroma anyway,
