I’ve been bleeding small amounts for days from my incision. I can see a small yellow spot could that be the stitches showing through or more likely to be an infection? I sent a photo to my PS but they have yet to get back to me. How worried should I be?
A: Spotting and discoloration of Steri-Strips is common
Light spotting with either red or clear yellow fluid under the Steri-Strips is common early after surgery. You should be fine waiting on your surgeon to reply if dressings are not saturated and there are no other unusual findings.
