Fluid in breast post-lumpectomy
I had a lumpectomy 6 days ago.  There appears to be fluid in the breast involved - when I lie down I hear what appears to be "sloshing" or "gurgling" sounds of liquid moving about.  Is this normal, or do I need to call the surgeon?

Dear JROTH:  Fluid in the breast following surgery can be an entirely normal occurrence.  It should be reabsorbed in time.  You should let your surgeon know that this has occurred as a courtesy.  If it gets any worse, you should also let your surgeon know.  On rare occasions, the fluid may leak through the incision
