Talk to surgeon,: You don't say what kind of surgery or why you had it. Was fat stranding present before the surgery on CT? The best person to explain this to you is the surgeon who operated, so please call and ask him or her. Fat stranding is a nonspecific sign so can't give you a better answer. Sorry! But your surgeon certainly can!
