No this is not OK. You should be seen today by your surgeon. This may represent an infection, and any further delay may compromise your outcome.

Best wishes.

If you are two weeks out and leaking fluid and possibly blood, then you should definitely be seen by your surgeon as soon as possible. This may represent, hematoma, seroma, infection, or impending implant extrusion to name a few.

This is not ok. Your incision should not drain and, 2 weeks out, your breast shouldn't be tender. Please call your surgeon and see them ASAP (if you were my patient, I'd want to know).

No this is absolutely not normal and there isn't much to tell you other than you should be at your doctor's office today. If he's not available to see you then you should see another doctor in your area.
