My microD was on 3/1 and I'm still experiencing drainage 15 days later. I saw my surgeon last week and he said that was still kinda normal, that I was just taking longer to heal and he pushed back my appt to have staples removed until tomorrow. But here I am, a week later, and still experiencing some drainage. Most of the time, it is not alot, but I notice when I'm up and moving alot, it gets worse. Saturday night while eating dinner, I felt the back of my robe was wet and sure enough it was from the drainage that had leaked through a pad, my shirt, and my heavy robe. When we put a new pad on, it had soaked through again in a matter of minutes. Is this normal?? I guess I'm just afraid he is going to release me back to work and since I'm constantly on my feet at work, that scares me. Especially since I cannot put the dressing on myself. Thank you for any responses!!
PS I'm using the extra absorbant dressings and tape two of them on together, But sometimes I just use what is really just a huge bandaid when it is not draining realy bad, and that seems to help more. I dont' know if it is because of the pressure it puts on it or not?? But even if that is why, is that a good thing?
