Cellulitis and chemotherapu

I have recently been treated for cellulitis.  I have a seroma from lymph node removal.  I am currently on chemo.  The surgeon wants to operate and find out why the seroma won't resolve.  The Oncologist says continue chemo and do surgery at end of chemo and before radiation.  What would be the best course?

fat necrosis?

This could be due to the infection you describe and there might also be some remaining infection in the area. If you can't get an answer from your Surgeon (not the PA) I would definitely consult either your Primary Care Physician or the Oncologist if you were referred to one. I would think after a month that this shouldn't be looking the way you describe. I suppose it might be fat necrosis but that ususally isn't evident on the skin surface. I would insist on an answer from one of your Dr.s !!    Regards ....
