They didn't tell me that, but I did have a tube coming out of the surgical site that I had to drain several times a day for about 10 days - that was gross! I never questioned it until my daughter had hers out recently and had no tube. Then they said, "It's a rare complication. They do that when there's excess bile that needs to be drained." Is bile the same or similar to fat, maybe? Do you have a tube?
I'm glad you're feeling better, anyway! I'm a worrier too, but I think it's partly because I have to be - no one else in the family worries at all!!
