    Hello,
    1year old female cat has 3 weeks after surgery (uncomplicated ovariectomy) unilateral subcutaneous edema between hind legs, which comes larger. Any idea what could happened?

      we use PGA Resorba, but area of suture is totaly healed and without reaction, the fluid started to stagnate in inguinum. it isnt hernia and there is no inflamation.

        Is there any cavity with fluid or it is just infiltrating tissue? Any other complaints, what about general state: appetite, thirsty, diuresis, stool?

          no cavity, it is diffuse in subcutis and in every other aspect it is completely healthy animal.

              Can be seroma - just benign serous fluid accumulation SC - sometimes quite a good amount. Aspirate it with the syringe!(the color can be white-yellow-red) If in a few days it comes again and more than 10 ml - it will be better to put a drainage for some days, though usually it resolves on its own.

                    better do xray or FNA to give better diagnosis.
