    Just wondering if anyone has had trouble with a seroma 6 months after surgery? I feel a cool tingling feeling at times, and as the main part has gone down, still fluid and scar tissue around. Any chance of infection still?

    I had two seromas two weeks post op. At a recheck the surgeon used a blade to open and drain them (on my upper back). Yeah, it hurt. Mine were not infected, just fluid collecting that needed drainage. Within a week the drainage stopped. I would guess six months is too long a time period, but I’m not a doctor. Best of luck to you.
