Very small old hematomas...
...can often be observed. Larger ones, particularly ones causing symptoms should probably be drained sooner rather than later. A physical exam would help, of course.
Is a 3 week old post Gyno Surgery Hematoma to old to drain?
Thank you for your question.
This may not be a Haematoma. If it is a Haematoma an Ultrasound guided aspiration can still be helpful, as the ultrasound can see if there is still fluid present in the lump.
All The Best !
Try first aspiration any way
usually a seroma (fluid accumulation) is more frequent at this stage 3 weeks post op . it does't look 100% hematoma on the photo , usually bad bruising is also present . The fact that it is hard may however indicate hematoma (organised) as a possibility . The doctor should firstly try to aspirate it with a large needle most of the time in my practice even after weeks i managed to aspirate it successfully , if failed you should have a scan to determine if it's surgical swelling, fluid or clotted blood, in this latter case easy surgical evacuation is needed. as a general rule always better to go back to your original surgeon.
