Is it okay for my wound to ooze after surgery?

I got a bad cut on my hand a few days ago, sliced a couple arteries, tendons, nerves and whatnot, had surgery and they stitched me up and sent me home, today is my first day home and im noticing a clear liquid formin arund my bandages, is this okay? Im going in tommorrow to have the bandages chaged, and im currently taking antibiotics.

    yes of course wounds ooze. Clear fluid is tissue fluid from the damage--same stuff that dries to make a scab.
