Incision Leaking

The incision above my belly button is still leaking and I change it at least 6-8 times a day.

Is this common?

I will have more questions coming as I had some issues along the way but wanted t start with this.

Re: Incision Leaking

My incision leaked for quite a while after my surgery. It was a watery yellow tinted drainage. I had called the doctors office and they said it was serum and is normal. I will be 5 wks post op on Wednesday, and it just recently stopped leaking and has scabbed over. As long as it's not infection and doesn't have an odor, you should be fine.

Re: Incision Leaking

Blah - even after having it re-stitched tonight my incision starting leaking again... plus side my doctor called me right back when I called the service. So now I will be going on my 3rd antibiotic since the surgery.

Anyone else still leaking?
