Went to surgeon today for first postop after takedown
staples were removed and he was pleased with my progress and my 7 to 10 bms per day at this early stage.
about an hour ago I woke up soaked with brown ooze from the surgical site.
call surgeon, he said it’s old blood hematoma that worked its way out after staple removal.
my first thought was oh my god my stoma reversal failed, sepsis,emergency surgery, blah blah blah etc etc etc mind racing to crazy conclusions.
any body else have this happen?
