See your doctor: This may be a normal amount of clear yellow serous body fluid coming from the surgical site. If there is increasing pain, redness and skin warmth contact your surgeon right away. If you are concerned, please call you surgeon very soon so you can be informed as to what to watch for and what to expect for your own condition.
