It's been almost 8 weeks since I had a 13cm dermoid cyst removed from my right ovary through laparoscopy. The surgery was a success and my recovery was considerably easy.
A couple of weeks after the surgery when the surgical glue peeled off of my navel, I noticed that it started to weep.
My GP took a swab, gave me some antibiotics and told me I'll be okay after it's finished.
During my post OP appointment a week ago, my surgeon cleared me for all activities including swimming.
However, to this day, the navel incision still weeps clear fluid. I don't know what to do! The doctors tell me it's normal but I'm scare that I'll get it re-infected if I go swimming and I'm off on a holiday.
I do my best to keep it as dry as possible but if I'm off to an island holiday, this would be very difficult to do.
Please give me some advice....
