Apparent nipple discharge after lumpectomy?
Before you say anything -- yes, I know this is a question for my doctor! I'm calling the office tomorrow to inform her of the issue and seek advice.
My left side lumpectomy and SNB was perfumed last Friday, March 30th. I have my post-op appointment on April 11th, and given all the typical post op instructions and have been following them well enough. My healing is great -- i'm not in a lot of pain and I'm back to work.
I still have all my surgical bandages on (and was told to keep them on and keep them dry until my post op visit) but I have noticed that in addition to the brown dried blood stains from the surgery, there is some new, pinkish-yellow discharge from what appears to be the nipple area. It's staining the bandage yellow/pink. I do not have a fever. No pain, other than occasional tingling and soreness in the breast.
Uh, anyone experience some nipple discharge days after their lumpectomy?
