Drain Free

Today the cath lab docs at Holy Family hospital removed my last remaining surgical drain. Yay! Since the 15th, my drainage had reduced drastically, which was what we were waiting to see. I met with my attending surgeon on Monday and he scheduled the procedure today. They shot contrast solution into the drain and visualized it on the fluoroscope. There were no additional pockets of hidden fluid so they pulled the tube out. I have to wear a bandage for awhile until the hole heals up, but I don't have to worry about getting it caught on things or trouble showering. So that's the good news for today!
