My mother just had the surgery on7/19. She was in the CVICU for 8 days, then she was transfer to regular floor. But on the 9 th day, we found out her thoracic duck is leaking fatty acid and drain out from the chest tube. She may need to stay in the hospital for weeks or months for that to heal. Does anyone else have this happen? Please share your experience. Thank you!
