Patient :I had surgery to fix a broken ankle 3 weeks ago. The staples were removed from both incision sites a week ago and I have steri strips on them now. The last 4 days there has been a new spot of blood at one incision site every day. The spot are all about the same size (1 cm). I tried calling my doctor, the nurse said it was okay just as long as it didn't get worse, but I'm not sure if she was listening to me about it happening daily. I just wasn't sure if this sounds normal or not. Thanks.
