Developed a Large Hematoma Over Whole Breast After Breast Surgery, How Long for This to Heal?
I had breast surgery 3 wks ago for mass removal (2 masses). I developed a large hematoma over whole breast. It has improved but the area to the right of the areola, next to the incision line still has a hematoma. What treatment/tests should i be getting? How long to heal this? Am I at risk for complication? so far my doc is just watching it- told me this is rare and has never seen this before. do i get 2nd opinion?
