I agree with Dr. Gottlieb. Call your surgeon. If you can't reach him/her or a colleague, then go to the ER.

How about a call to your surgeon? That's what the ER would probably do, and then they would probably send you to the surgeon's office for follow up. It is most unlikely that anyone there3 will replace the drain if that is what is needed.
Call your surgeon.
