Fibroadenoma Surgical Suture Marks Come Out Brownish Blood?
At night, I finished fam surgery on the right and left breast 2 weeks ago, my bandage was opened 1 week after the surgery because the stitches were dry (Thursday). But Monday night the lower right stitching came out brown blood, but not long after the bleeding stopped. I have not been able to control the doctor because he was on leave. I checked this on the left side and it turns out that the middle one is like a small hole in the middle like a small thread that does not blend with the skin. Is that dangerous or not? Then how should I add additional stitches?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Mammary fibroadenoma (FAM) is a type of benign tumor in the breast. Frequently, this condition does not require special treatment other than observation. However, if it feels very disturbing, its size is getting bigger, making pain, or potentially becoming malignant, then surgery is needed to remove it. After surgery, patients usually need about 1 to 2 weeks to recover and can reactivate as before.
Former FAM surgeries often become inflamed a few days after surgery. This inflammation can be characterized by pain, redness, or also bleeding from the surgical scar. If the amount of blood that comes out is very small, and is not accompanied by other complaints, for example fever, abnormal discharge comes out and smells bad, swollen breasts, chills, and so often this is not dangerous. Seamless seams that appear to be unified, if they are small (less than 5 mm) are often not dangerous.
However, if you feel a sign of inflammation that is quite severe or the size of the hole in your former operation is large enough, then you should check yourself to your doctor or surgeon. It is feared, this condition occurs due to healing obstacles, for example due to infection or bleeding disorders. With a direct examination, the doctor can certainly give you the right treatment. If the doctor who previously operated on you was unable to due to leave, then you can go to another doctor.
In the meantime, you should always keep your surgical scars clean and not damp. Clean your surgical scars in the way your doctor recommends. Take a clean shower, use a bra and clothes that are comfortable and not too tight. Avoid over-pressing or holding the operation using dirty hands. Do not forget, multiply rest, drink lots, and eat nutritious foods so that stamina recovers immediately after surgery.
Hope this helps ...
