How long have you had them in? If it's been a couple of days, I might call my doc. If you don't feel like it's clearing up quickly enough I would definitely call the surgeon to get an opinion over the phone. Other than that, not a lot of help, it's kind of a situation that you have to live with sure feels good to have them out though!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have my last reconstruction on the 23rd and he said I would definitely have drains again because of the work he'll have to do on one side - scar tissue from former mastectomy. I am dreading those things!!!!!
Jeremiah 29:11 - "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Oh Laure' I wish I had some super advice to make it better, but I don't. I only had one and had it removed 5 days after surgery. But I only had a partial so I'm sure that had something to do with it. I found that the suction is what caused the pain. And that is what gets the fluid out so it's a good thing, even though it hurts like h*!!
Are you wearing loose clothes to keep it from rubbing against your skin? I could only wear jammies during those days. And I used the less sticky medical tape to tape the tube to my tummy in a way that it wouldn't kink but it had some slack so as not to pull at the site.
It's going to feel SO good to get them out. But in the meantime you are in my thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery!
Love and hugs,
PS. Are you right handed? Maybe the use of that hand is making it more painful. Try to limit what you do. I know it's hard but it may help.
