I had a DaVinci radical hysterectomy on 12/27. All went well and I have five small incisions. My problem is that one of the incisions (less than 1/4 inch and the one where I had a drainage tube after surgery) had steri-strips on it that fell off yesterday. The incision started to drain clear liquid and hasn't stoppped. I called the surgeon's office today and the RN said to keep it clean and put new steri-stripes over it and a new bandage. I put steri-strips over it but they are not holding like the ones that were put on in the hospital and I'm still getting drainage. I know this isn't the worst problem in the world, but how will it ever heal if it keeps draining? Does anyone have any advice as to how to close this incision up?

I don't know, but I had tab/bso Dec 6, and about 9 days post-op my incision popped open a bit. my husband helped me apply a pressure bandage with sterile gauze and tape. I didn't do anything strenuous(that's what caused mine in the first place, doing too much ) but anyways, I kept it dry for the next two days and it healed wonderfully. I couldn't call my doc. it was on the weekend.. of course, when all goes wrong!

take care, sorry if this isn't helpful
