DIEP and seroma
I had my DIEP four weeks ago and noticed last night when I pressed on the left side of my abdomen incision I got the rolling waves hallmark of a seroma. Contacted my BS today and they confirmed that's probably what it was and told me I could come to the office and attempt to drain it. I have my next appointment 02/28/23 and they said I could wait until then but in the meantime what can I do to try and resolve it on it's own? Wearing compression right now with a heating pad over it and will start doing gentle massage. Anything else to do? Luckily it's not even remotely painful or really even uncomfortable. Just noticeable and feels weird. I'd like to get rid of it naturally if possible though.
