Does it look normal? Is my incision okay? 1 week post-op (Photos)

My first question is about my drain tube site. The holes have been pretty tender. Does it look normal? Is my incision okay? It left a alot of crust on gauze yesterday. One spot was yellow

You are swollen but it seems to be in the normal range.  The drain site looks fine, the longer the drain is in the more irritated the skin gets, your body just doesn't like that piece of plastic.  Good luck, Jane
