I have had a LOT of leaking through my incisions, after the drains were taken out. My doctors said the fluid finds the path of least resistance. Once incisions heal the body will have to reabsorb the fluid.

Yes, my plastic surgeon had to go back in. I had expanders in after my mastectomy. She exchanged the expander on the affected side. It could be an infection.
