What is the dark green color under the yellow fat cells in the abdomen?


I had an inverted T tummy tuck 5 1/2 weeks ago. At the T is a M&M size hole. Up until this weekend it had a yellowish drainage like the fat cells breaking down with no oder. The yellowish fat cells are gone and now what looks like a dark green gel like layer of insides is what is there. Still no oder or pain. What is this? I am schedule to see my PS on Friday, should I get in earlier? My fear is the unknown. Any ideas?

I called my PS this morning and they moved my appointment up to Wednesday, as she is not in the office until then. I will keep you posted.
