Who'll stop the drain.

With the apology to the Creedence Clearwater Revival:

Still the drain kept pourin', fallin' through my side.
And I wonder, Still I wonder Who'll stop the drain.

Wednesday the drain stopped leaking, at least that was what I thought. Today, at the doctor's visit I was expecting the drain to be removed. It turned out it was just plugged-in and after he used syringe to pull some of the blocking stuff, the drain started to flow freely. It is over 8 weeks now.
From my web searching I know that persistent seroma can lead to smoothing out the surfaces to the point that they will not adhere. Also, there is a chance of a fibrous seroma, encapsulated form with the membrane, that has to be removed surgically. Both of these complications are bummer, on top of the infection (I am suppose to continue on antibiotics for another 11 days). If anyone had similar experience - please share.
Next visit on Tuesday
