Chyle Leak

Hi my dad was and still is doing really well. He is 2 weeks post op and apparently has a chyle leak.

He is on a low fat diet and they have removed the drain for now but said it may have to go back in if he has clinical symptoms. He has an xray tomorrow to ses if the fluid is filling up around lungs ??

Has anyone experienced this before ??

Should i be worried ? ❤❤
