My drains came out in the hosp. because I was in there longer than planned. I would think you would feel them. They gave me a special top to ear at home to accomodate the drains. It is important to take care of them. Do you have a visiting nurse sceduled? Look through all your discharge papers, there has to be info. If not, call. I'm sure someone is available on week-ends. It is a good question, you need to know the answer. Good luck!

I just realized there is no drain on me? At least I don't feel one and I really don't remember the Dr. or RN saying anything to me about it. Yet I do remember the surgeon saying she would be putting one on me. As well as all the "after care" stuff they gave me when I was released to come home....am I missing something?
