I had a mast. + DIEP flap 4 months ago b/c I am BRCA 2+ . I have fluid draining in 2 places on my ab. incision. The worse of the two is a location that had a drain for 3.5 weeks after my surgery. It has opened up a couple of times since. This week, the Dr. opened it up because it was red. I don't think it was infected but it is draining a lot. I am 47, do not smoke or have any condition that would cause poor healing. Is this normal? What is causing this? Thank you for any advice you can share!
