When are drains necessary and when are they not necessary?
- Last updated: 7 months ago
I have noticed while reading all the reviews that some women don't have post-op drainage tubes and some do. I just had mine removed two days ago, along with a capsulotomy, and have tubes I will need to wear for a week. I've also been instructed to leave the bandages on until then. Others just have little incisions and are able to take pictures the next day. So I'm wondering, what factors dictate whether or not the tubes are needed?
