When I was in ICU following surgery for cancer, I was hugely swollen. I'm told it was caused by the drugs I was given. But the odd thing is, I sprung a leak! Or several leaks according to my daughter. I just remember liquid oozing through the skin of my wrist, and a permanently wet bandage hanging from it. At the time I didn't care, I was deep in morphine nightmares, but now I wonder if the same thing has happened to other people? Is it common for the skin to leak in ICU?
