My niece had pancreatic surgery in June because of an unsucessful gastric bypass. She developed a seroma which you can google to learn more about

She had her surgery at JH in Baltimore and has great care there but still had to go to a wound specialist after all the antibiotics and changing of dressings, etc. for months. She is finally getting the help she needs that only a wound specialist can provide when it involves a seroma.

I'm glad you won't have to wait that long by going to a wound specialist which she was finally referred to. This past Monday she had a wound vac placed in the wound which will drain it and give it extra ventilation from what I understand. She has a great attitude and will conquer this. I hope you get referred to a great wound specialist and get on with the healing asap. Glad they got it all too. I'm thanking God with you. The best.
