Post-operative seroma - Answered by Dr. Lee

Hi Dr. Lee,

our pup Jaida recently underwent surgery for an amputation (well, two amputations, technically) and we had a lot of problem with fluid buildup. You can read the thread here:

http://www.pets.ca/forum/showthread.php?t=41511

I was wondering...could the seroma have been CAUSED by the pressure bandaging we did? Could it have been an allergic reaction to the subcutaneous sutures? What can cause this sort of thing? Our own vet has only seen a seroma of this extent two other times in his career after a surgical excision and is at a loss to explain it. Any ideas?
