2nd surgery to clear margins.

Hi all,

I’m just wondering if anyone can help. I had surgery yesterday to clear margins after my previous op showed cancerous cells.

Well, i have woken up this morning and obviously have a lot of fluid in the wound as i could hear it sloshing ?, but its not painful and there is no lump. So i’m wondering if it is ok to leave to settle for a few days as my breast care nurses are not available to ask over bank hol wkend. And i dont really want a trip to A & E if not necessary? 

Has anyone experienced the same? 


Thank you Amantha
