Bleeding through incision - I had a small hematoma 12 days post op tt with mr and ventral hernia with mesh.

Still draining but getting lighter. One spot was more yellow than brown and slightly thicker. On antibiotics. Now it's bright red blood on pad mixed with yellow discharge. What could that be?

It is best to show us photos.  However, hematomas and infections may happen with Tummy tucks and it sounds like you are being treated appropriately.  Without photos it is difficult for us to tell you what is going on.
