  • Are you positive it is from inside the incision? If so, you need to call your Dr's office and make them aware of what you think. Nothing should be coming from the inside out unless it is a drain or drainage and at 6 weeks post you should have neither.

  • it is from the inside because when the bandage came off there weren't any stitches on the outside and he said that they were on the inside. it looks like a knot or something where they tied it off.
