Hi there,

Thank you for posting, I had my op a month ago too and am in the same position; you are not alone! I don't have any answers unfortunately but I have booked a check up with the nurse this week to see if there is anything that can help, that is my only advice.

All the best

Thanks for reply is yours leaking too x

Yep, not as bad as it has been and slightly thicker but it's still not stopped.

Me too back at nurse Tuesday just never ending

Hi can you phone the ward you were on and ask for some advice? X

You need to see someone as they can either use a silver nitrate stick on it or a special dressing. It needs sorting or it will continue to weep & grow.

If you’ve got a good practice nurse she will do it or gp

Been to the nurse must be 6-7 times now they just put a clean dressing on it and say it’s normal

there right it is not uncommon to over granulate but if it’s not healing/improving after 4 weeks then it needs a bit of help. The whole area looks wet and irritated to me. I agree it’s not infected but If I saw it (I’m a nurse) and it’s not healing then it needs some help such as a different dressing. If you google over granulation then it might give you some back up. Good luck & I hope it heals soon x
