Ugh! I Hate My Drain, Part 2!



Recommended Posts

So I had my appointment at 2:30 to get my drain out. At 4:00, the receptionist decides to announce that the dr is in surgery and I have to come back tomorrow! :((

UGH Kelly,

I'm so sorry...that is soooo frustrating!!! I saw your post about your drain last night and it got me wondering why some use it and others don't. I think we were sleeved on the same day?? (April 3oth) I meant to ask my Dr why he doesn't use them. Not that I wanted one, but where's all the stuff going in me that would normally be in that drain...hmmmmmm...?? I guess your body just absorbs or rids itself of it. I am still so swollen, I know a lot of it is gas but still makes me wonder. Hope tomorrow they get right to you!! :)

Please don't get me wrong, I am THANKFUL for my sleeve but this drain is about to drive me up the wall! I was sleeved on May 1st. I really thought about that too, why some dr's use drains and some don't? I have had to really empty mine out about 2 times a day too. After about a week, it becomes very tender and I have a 2 year old daughter who thinks its funny to sometimes pull on mine lol. It must come out soon!!

I'm a April 30th sleever also. I didn't have a drain either. Not really sure what it's for but it sounds like they are very annoying.

You poor thing! I was in the hospital 2 nights and they removed my drain before I went home on the 3rd day. It felt weird when they removed it but not very painful. I don't know why you would have to wait for a doctor to remove it .... the nurse yanked mine out. Anyhow, hope you get it taken care of tomorrow (do NOT let them delay you again!).

I had a drain as well and it was the bain of my existance, I had it for about 10 days alltogether and I was counting down the day till I didnt have that stupid thing any more. That area is super tender.... So i got it out a week well almost two ago and it was the happiest day ever....it didnt hurt either (i was super scared of that) so thank goodness! I think that they decide if you have alot of Fluid inside of you or not if they leave the drain, I too have heard that some have it and some dont. I think it perhaps is just a safety precaution as it can cut down on infections and stuff too I would think if the goo isnt inside you. IDK just guessing.

But good luck I would just rip the bastard out myself if they told me that,. LOL

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
