What is normal concerning hematoma after surgery?

Is there treatment?


Answer by  ddaguno (123)

Blood vessels get cut during surgery that's why a person may have hematoma afterwards. These are blood bruises and in most cases they resolve spontaneously without causing problems. Sometimes it can get infected so you might need antibiotics for treatment. If the hematoma is severe it may require surgical evacuation or drainage.

When a surgeon cuts with a knife, there is going to be bleeding during and even after surgery. Hematoma is arrested with artery forceps during surgery. When the wound is closed sfter surgery, some bleeding may cause hematoma and it can be treated by antibiotics and Serratiopeptidase tablets.

You should not have a problem with a hematoma after surgery, it is just a blood bruise and will get better.

Following surgery,there may be some minor ooze from small blood vessels which may collect to form a hematoma. In most cases,it will resolve spontaneously without causing any symptoms. Rarely,if it's large,it may get secondarily infected and cause symptoms like fever,pain etc. for which anti-biotics and evacuation of the hematoma will be required.

The treatment depends on the size of the hematoma. Some hematomas are very small and will go away on their own. Others are larger, and may require a surgical evacuation, or drainage.

It could be normal to have hematoma after surgery, even though the best recommendation of treatment including ice on the infected area.


Answer by  Moma123 (1043)

Hematoma after a surgery is the accumulation of blood in the surgical site and surrounding tissues due to damage to the surrounding blood vessels. Usually hematoma gets dissolved by itself. For severe hematoma, surgery is done to reopen the wound and drain out the accumulated blood. Then the blood vessels are clamped. Anti-inflammatory, analgesics and blood thinning medications are given.

Answer by  meganliu (62)

I believe there is treatment on hematoma after surgery. If you can't get treatment in your home country, I think you can get better treatment from other countries. Because in today's technological society, hematoma is a small case to cure.
