Biopsy surgery

Two months ago I had a surgery to remove a tumor from my thigh. After the surgery I got a blood clot . I get treatment for that. My concern is with the fluids I get in the area where the tumor was. I go to the hospital once a week to drain it.I know that during the surgery they cut a lymph node. My question is how long it will take to recover and is it normal ?       eva

Hi Eva.
How extensive was the surgery done on your thigh?  After extensive surgery, a drain is usually placed to drain the excess fluid accumulating in the surgical site and thus facilitate wound healing.  Fluids that accumulate should be drained also to prevent infection of the surgical site.    
Do you already have the result of the biopsy?  I think you should go back to your surgeon for further evaluation and management.
Good luck.
