Bf had meniscus surgery, now has synovial fluid leaking?

Synovial Fistula: A rare complication of arthroscopic surgery is a synovial fistula, where the synovial fluid of the knee leaks from the incision site. Close monitoring by the surgeon is required to make sure this is not an infection or becoming an infection.
