    Where did you drain the fluid from, and what was she like before you drained the fluid?

    I think you might have punctured something vital or a very sensitive spot.

    Was there a lot of blood? If the bleeding hasn't stopped try to stop it. She might be bleeding inside and at that point there's nothing you can really do.
