Just when I thought I was on the road to recovery, the seroma in my thigh filled up again.Â I had another MRI done yesterday and discovered the seroma is 30 cm long by 7.5 wide.Â Pretty huge.Â So today my ortho surgeon aspirated it again (my 4th aspiration in 2 months) and took out 138 ml of murky fluid. Â Gigantic, really.Â No wonder I couldn’t walk.
I’m back on anti-biotics as there is suspected infection, which explains the bouts of fever I’ve been getting.Â And I’m flat on my back again, with strict orders to keep my leg elevated.Â I guess that means if I try to ride I have to pull out my old racing saddles.
I’ve been scolded by three people already for not listening to my doctor’s orders enough. Â This time I’ve promised to do my best.Â If after this aspiration the seroma still doesn’t heal, I am told my option is going to be to have a drain stuck in my leg.Â I’m not too keen on a monsoon in my trousers so I think I’ll do my best to stick to doctors orders.
