Thank you for the question.
Abnormal blood and fluid discharge from the appendix operation generally indicates a secondary infected operation. This condition is more common in people with appendicitis who have ruptured to trigger inflammation in the abdominal cavity. It could also, secondary infection in the former operation is triggered by inadequate wound care, weak immune system, as well as excessive physical activity. Not only blood and fluid comes out, the former infected operation generally will also feel pain, swell, give off a bad odor, and even make you fever or chills.
Your condition should be checked by a doctor or surgeon who treated you before. With a physical examination, ultrasound, blood test, or examination of fluid samples that come out of the former operation, the best treatment can generally be done, such as by giving drugs, wound care, maybe even re-surgery.
At this time, what you should do is:
Clean the blood and fluid that comes out of the former operation using sterile gauze moistened with liquid NaCl or povidone iodine
Avoid using clothes that are too tight, so as not to cause excessive friction on your former surgery
Eat a variety of foods that are nutritious and rich in protein
Expand also rest
Hope this helps ...
