Clear Fluid Comes Out In The Appendix Scar?
I’m selvia. Want to ask, after surgery. There is a liquid liquid that appears to be pink from the surgical suture y. It’s been like that for almost a week. To wet the clothes. Is that dangerous?
Good morning, thanks for the question
Every operation must have a risk. In a surgical wound that does not heal, discharge, or ache, complications are suspected, which interferes with the normal wound healing process.
Some complications that may arise include:
A little bleeding can occur under the skin. This hemorrhage usually stops spontaneously but results in the formation of clots within the wound. If the clot is small, it will be absorbed spontaneously. When the wound is large and the wound is usually protruding
healing will be hampered unless these clots are removed.
2. Surgical wound infection
Stapihylococcuss Aureus causes many wound infections
post operatively. Symptoms that occur such as fever, usually swollen, warm sores
tenderness, discharge or pus, or the wound will not close.
3. Dehicence and eviseration
Dehicence is a wound that does not close and eviscer
is protrusion of the wound contents. This complication often occurs in loose stitches, infections and more often due to hard coughing and straining.
Factors that influence wound healing can originate from the wound itself such as wound contamination and blood clots, from patient factors such as age and nutritional status, as well as from local factors such as wound depth and infection. If one of them is disturbed, the risk is to cause old wounds to heal.
You should consult a doctor to assess and determine appropriate therapy whether in the form of conservative or other more aggressive measures.
That's all, hope you can help
