I had a tummy tuck 2 weeks ago and the drain tube is hurting really bad. Should it be hurting?
Does the Drain Tube Normally Cause Pain After A Tummy Tuck?

Drainage tube pain after TT
It is possible to have more pain at the sites where drain tubes once were or are. In fact, most patients complain more about the tubes than the surgical incision. However, without a physical examination is not possible to know if you have any infection. Please follow the directions of your plastic surgeon very closely and relay your concerns.
