I have read the threads concerning unexplainable yellow drainage at PICC exit site, but did not see any conclusion to what it was. I was just called about a PICC I placed recently - this week. The dressing has had to be changed frequently due to the drainage. I read the threads so the person on the other end of the phone could hear. I told her that from what I was reading that it could be lymph fluid and the end result was the pulling of the PICC. I had no other comments. She stated that she wasn't going to pull the PICC at this time.
I suggested doing a glucose check, but this late in the day I don't think this is going to happen. Is there any additional informtion regarding the mysterious yellow fluid and/or recommendation regarding the PICC?
