oozing or old blood?

I had my ba surgery December 12th. 1 1/2 weeks PO I had bleeding out of one incision. I saw my PS and he squuezed a bunch out and said it was old blood from surgery that was sitting in there. He said it would continue to ooz out uniil it all was out. He said there was no new blood as it was all dark red. I am now over 3 weeks PO and its still oozing. I called my PS again to ask how much longer it should be going on and if I need to worry about an infection. He said since I am young and healthy and as long as I keep it clean and keep clean gauze on it I should be fine and he's not worried. Well I am! I don't like this and I want to get a second opinion. How do I do that?? Please help. This is freaking me out and I have two small kids and really don't want to explant becaus elf getting an infection. Thanks!
