What is the Estimated Recovery Period After Seroma Draining?

How long should I expect to be off work after having a seroma drained from my right buttock? This seroma is a result of trauma caused by a bad fall 4 years ago

In this case I would need much more information, do you have buttock implants, etc... I would first refer back to the surgeon who drained the seroma for his/her advice.  Not infrequently seromas need to be drained more than once before they resolve completely.  Glad to help...RAS
