after my recent shoulder op on my ac joint..all seemed to be going well..apart from developing an abcess..which cleared up with antibiotics..

pain is almost nil now...and scar healed up really well..but the question is..

why does it keep filling with fluid? i can pierce the scar slightly to allow it to drain out...but i drained it last night and fluid is back today..

liquid spilling out of it is orangey colour..prob blood and something else mixed..

what is this...and should i go back to doctors again or is it normal?

it could be remnants of the wound healing from the bottom (granulation),if there is no other sign of infection (heat, pain, fever, puss) - the small sinus will heal eventually but pop to the docs if unsure - may be worth some more anti biotics or get it swab tested
