Hematoma 15wks After Surgery
This could be a recurrence of your seroma or a hematoma. Best way to tell is a visit to your surgeon, where a decision about diagnosis and treatment can be made. Chances are an aspiration will make or exclude the diagnosis, and may be adequate treatment, though follow up will be needed.
Thanks for your question, best wishes.
Chronic seroma might require surgical correction.
After a delayed evacuation of a hematoma, a seroma might become chronic. This is a well lined cavity that might need to be excised for the problem to resolve.
