Malfunctioning Drain After Facelift
I warned the anesthesiologist that I over-react to anesthesia so he only used propofol. However, I was still out over 4 hrs. after a face-lift, lower blepharoplasty, brown lift, and laser resurfacing. During this time, the drain tube would not drain and had to be reinserted 4 times. This caused major pain and a very painful hole for 2 wks afterward. Why do drains malfunction? Is this unusual? Is it something with my body's intolerance for anesthesia or the drains?
