When do seromas go away? My surgeon said that my skin is not scarring down after my mastectomies. I've been wearing very tight ace wrap bandages for 4 weeks, and still the fluids returns. I've done no activity for past 4 days to decrease amount of lymph.

    Everyone's body handles seromas differently. I know you wrote this 3 weeks ago but I wasn't able to answer your question. I had a friend who after taking out her drainage tubes one side kept getting seromas which made her miserable so the surgeon went in and put the tubes back in for a time.
