Is It Normal to Have Dark Red Drain Fluid After 1 Week Post Op?
I am fit, 5'2" 122lbs. Had a TT 1 week ago and for the last 3 days my output went from 25 to 15 and then 10 cc of drain fluid daily. I am concerned that the color of the fluid has gone from light red to wine color. There is no bad odor, my pain is at about 2 on a scale of 10, I've been off pain meds for the past 4 days. Should I be concerned? I thought the fluid was supposed to get lighter in color.
