I don't know anything about a seroma hun, so just found this -

A hematoma is a pocket of solid clotted or liquid blood in the tissues. A seroma is a pocket of clear or slightly blood fluid (usually blood serum or blood plasma) in the tissues. Serious problems due to hematomas or seromas are rare, and may require further surgery to control bleeding or remove the fluid or clot.

If you have either a hematoma or a seroma, you will notice a very swollen and tender area that is possibly darkened, like a very dark bruise. It may feel like a pocket of liquid or hard like a lump underneath. If you have any concerns, call your surgeon immediately.

From HERE

The swelling you're experincing might well be very normal hun, I too had swelling that made the breast look worse by the day it seemed all the way up until ten weeks till it suddenly got better! So try not to get yourself upset hunni, but definately don't ignore it.

If ever anyone is overly concerned about anything regarding your surgery, then you should call the clinic babe just to make sure all is well.

Let us know how you get on sweetheart.

Thinking of you and sending a big hug Hug

Hey Jenny,

I have a look and I think they are a bit swollen on the side. I was imagining something worse thant but overall they seem fine. Hopefully the nurse should get back to you soon and put your concerns at rest. I'm sure there's nothing to be worried about. Your twins still look fab to me!

I had ur password from before and had a quick peek, it could just be swelling as it can take a while to go. But I would check with the nurse just to put your mind at rest

I would call your nurse/surgeon just to check. It's unlikely to be anythign serious but it's worth just getting them checked over just in case.

its gone

Post by jennyb1709 on 22nd March 2010, 4:07 pm

well what a relief.... i cant believe it has gone so quick........must have just over done things....... nurse said would be unlikely to get a seroma 5 weeks after a ba .... seromas generally happen within a few days of surgery................still i am booked in to see her next tues for my 6 week check.......... i did however take some ibuprofen and have started back on the arnica ..... this maybe coincidental... but im just happy its gone....................oh and thought i might sleep upright for a couple of nights too

thanks for your thoughts and comments xxx Hug

Re: could it be seroma

Post by showmethemoni69 on 4th April 2010, 6:54 am

Hi Jenny, sorry i couldnt send you a private message back as it says i cant as i havent reached the post limit for sending one.

Firstly can i say it is quite normal to have a build up of fluid after surgery and this can take months to be absorbed back into your body.

I have had a BA twice before so i know how your breasts feel/heal after surgery.

My experience of a seroma - I had a bi-lateral seroma which was very rare, trust me........

Under my breasts they felt quite lumpy to touch where there was fluid, also to the left/right of my breast it felt puffy to touch where the fluid had also collected, also on my left hand side it reached my armpit which became uncomfortable and resticted movement.

I cant show you any pictures of my boobs as i had my implants removed on Thursday after 2 revision surgeries in 2 weeks to help my body recover before putting implants back in. I must say it is very strange having small boobies again.......

It is helping as the fluid is absorbing slowly back into my body, i can feel this as it is uncomfortable when the fluid builds up and is relieved when it is absorbing back into my body.... fingers crossed this helps and i can have my boobs back soon!!

If you have any concernes Jenny contact the clinic to put your mind at rest.
