Seepage after surgery

I had a partial on my right kidney on Mon 12/21, they inserted a small drainage tube for drainage. I was released from the hospital on Thurs 12/24, and they took the drainage tube out of me. I have been home now for 4 days and it is still seeping pretty much I have to change dressing 3 or 4 times a day,. Has anyone else had this problem? and if so how long does it take for this seeping to stop? The actual incision is fine but this is below it where they had the tube in me.

I would contact the urologist that did the surgery and get his input asap
