Hi, Maria, If it was me, I would call the surgeon's office today to give them an update. It may not be anything serious but this is an instance where I would take no chances. If you cannot get in to see the surgeon, perhaps, your family doctor could see your husband. Possibly, I am over cautious but after my AVR there was no leaking through the chest incision. My 4 little incision across the top of the abdomen that held the drains and wires did leak a little for more than a month but never the large incision. I hope all is well.
