I Am on Day 3 of my Tummy Tuck. I Am Milking the Drain Tube and It is Giving my Terrible Cramps. Is This Normal?

Your cramping does not sound like its something that the drains are causing. You should call your PS to make sure everything is ok.

The cramping that you are experiencing is probably not from the drains. I would contact your plastic surgeon for futher instruction on what to do. You should probably be examined for any complications.
