Hi everyone. 1st time here, but have been perusing everywhere to find help. Right hip surgery March 25th. Surgery went perfect, went home on the 27th. Everything was going pretty well, when I had a little football forming on my stitch line. Then just before the staples came out, It opened up and drained. Went to the Dr. and they said it was a bursa sac that had drained. I saw the x-ray, and there was liquid in it. They said not to worry come back in a month. About a week later, it started draining again. This time a little more yellow color. So I am freaking out. Went back to the DR. the next day. They told me that some sutures must have broken, and it should be fine. Just might take about 4-6 weeks to heal. What?? So here is where I am at. Still draining, but not a lot. I do change the band aid every 3-5 hours, and there is still drainage. Question is, I am thinking it might need an antibiotic to finish healing. I have had several major surgeries, none like this though!! If you have had a similar experience, or have knowledge of what is going on. I would be interested and grateful for your input.
