The amount that I am draining is under 25 cc and I am scheduled to have the drains taken out tomorrow. One of the drains came out last night, should I be worried?

Hi Shantai, you don't need to worry. Cover the area with a bandage and go to your scheduled appointment.
No worries. Like you said it was scheduled to come out tomorrow anyhow and if drainage was less than 30cc it would have been removed. Just cover with bandaid and see your doc as scheduled
No worries. If there is a suture remaining, your surgeon can remove it at a later date.
