abdominal incision still leaking, 6 weeks post op??

I have been on antibiotics twice since my surgery. The first time for heavy leaking in my large abdominal incision. This time it is leaking only a tablespoon of liquid every few hours.

My question is this, I am almost six weeks post op and my incision still has open holes in it, only on one side, that is where the leaking is coming from.

Please help, have you had this?

Re: abdominal incision still leaking, 6 weeks post op??

I have a hole in my incision to I go to the wound care center on Mondays, and home health nurse Wednesday, and Fridays. All they told me so far is that because if diabetic and overweight my body didn't heal before my stiches desolved. My wound is really deep 9.7 cm and climbing no of the doctors seemed so laid back its my home health nurse that seems concerned. I going in tomorrow to ask more questions if you have any I will ask them for you to. Let me know. Your leaky sister. Carolyn

Sorry to hear you dont have insurance right now between wound care center and the home health nurse they are looking at it three times a week. The whole experience is scarely exspecially when it seems there is not end. Diloretta you really should have that looked at before it bust open all the way. My incision near leaked it busted with no warning now im looking at 2 to 3 months of healing.
