Is this bleeding normal?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Had surgery yesterday November 2. Feel really well, except for moderate drainage at naval site. I heard ppl say walk. So I did, maybe to much? The walking help ease the pain but is this drainage normal?

Description: over flowing out of the bandage. Needing to be changed 14 hours after surgery?

    Hiย 

    it's the colour that matters . If it's green ... Well greenish .. If it's running out like a cut .. But if it's just a matter of changing your dressing I wouldn't worry . But rest a little more you've got lots of internal stitches and they need to heal ...ring the hospital or doctors ย if u r worried ..peace of mind AIDS healing ..glad it's gone yippee ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜

    It's red and for some reason I'm not very worried. I will rest more tomorrow. I ย just feel better moving about. Thank you for your time. I was put to sleep and took a nap after that now my sleep pattern is off. I have a lot of energy for some reason. Lol

    When I had my gallbladder removed at end of April they said to me to keep dressing on for as long as possible, as changing it tends to disturb it and it starts to ooze again. I had district nurse come and change my dressing for me for a few days.

    If you are worried contact your surgery but it sounds fine to me.
