I had a super-cervical hysterectomy July 14th, and now after a CT/CAT Scan I have serous fluid the size of 4.9 x 3.7 x 19 cm in size. I am still encountering a lot of pain in the area where this small focal serous fluid collection is. My questions are: Will this drain on it's own since the surgical site is closed and/or will a drain need to be surgically placed in order for the serous fluid to be drained? What do I need to do in order to have this taken care of. I am taking 600 milligrams of Motrin which does not seem to help the pain. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance
Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out. Small collections of fluid can get absorbed but larger collections need to be drained. The serous fluid is really quite large in size and I presume it needs to be drained. For the same, youâll need o consult a gynecologist/surgeon.
