I've heard there are some Dr's that don't use a drain or take them out before you go to the hotel. But from what I understand correct me if I'm wrong, if the drain stays in after the leak test is done, you will also know if there is a leak if you see any blue dye in the drain. That's just what I've read, makes since though.

Dr Garcia did mine and used a drain tube . It stayed in after leak test and was taken out right before we left to go back to hotel ...

I was discharged yesterday and am now at Marriott. I can not say enough great things about about the staff at Mi Doctor Hospital and Dr. Valenzuela and Dr. A ( for short) I can honestly say that besides the language barrier( which is not that bad) that was the best hospital experience I have ever had.. And sadly I work at a hospital that is ranked one of the top 50 hospitals in this United States.... I am so excited to start my new life. I am feeling great and I owe it all to my friends who took such wonderful care of me:-) gonna go out and do more shopping today, then home tomorrow .

      Good Morning! Today is the first day of my liver shrinking diet!  It is hard being in the office and in my classes thinking about my old habits. But surgery is so close so can't complain too much! !10 days away!! Here we go.

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
