Has anyone who has had a Lymph Node Dissection had any lumpy white discharge in their drainage tube?
My husband had surgery 9 days ago and each day the discharge has been regular light red fluid as we expected. Yesterday he had a low fever, which is gone today, but the discharge going through his tube all day looks like cottage cheese. We called the surgeon and his nurse had us email a picture of what it looked like. She emailed back and said it's doesn't look concerning, but didn't say much else. Nothing I have read says anything about this type of discharge.
Is there anyone here that had the surgery had a similar experience. The surgeon has a very good reputation so I'm sure his nurse is more then qualified, it just seems weird.
