Dark Red Drainage 2 Weeks After ETT?
I had an extended tuck two weeks ago and did not require muscle repair. Two jp drains were put in and the right side has been perfect and has been removed. The left drain is still draining around 100cc per 24 hrs of dark red almost purple blood/fluid. My ps says it may be from a small vein that got nicked and leaked blood. Is this something that resolves on its own? I am worried about blood loss even though my PS tells me not to. My color is good and I feel fine but am still concerned.
