Post Breast Implant Removal: Should Drain be Removed if Only Drainage is 150cc of Breast Milk?
I had an emergency breast explantation done last week due to staph infection that ate a lot of my breast tissue. I was breastfeeding at that time and my jp drain is filling up with 150cc of milk daily no other drainage has been noted just the breastmilk. My surgeon is questioning wether or not she should remove the drain and what the next step should be wether I should try and dry up the milk or not ?
