- I am so sorry you had multiple complications and delighted you have a surgeon now you can trust.
- Often a hematoma is converted to scar which gradually improves.
- Your surgeon can order an ultrasound to see if fluid remains inside - if so, it can be removed.
- Otherwise, the wait and see approach seems appropriate.
Hope you found this answer helpful. Best wishes.

Lucky for you, it looks like your hematoma is resolving.
Thanks for your question.
I'm sorry that your road has been difficult!
It does seem like the hematoma is resolving. It is important to know that any fluid that is left behind as the hematoma resolves may need drainage if the body can't absorb it. I would work closely with this new PS to monitor your improvement and make decisions as issues arise.
