Had my JP drains removed today, and was pleasantly surprised
There wasn’t pain! I had expected it to be very painful. One blogger I read had indicated it was painful for her.
But for me I barely felt anything at all. It was just kind of an odd feeling for a couple of seconds and then it was all done.
Now I just need to keep the area clean with fresh gauze for a few days until the holes close and the slight oozing stops. No big deal.
And boy do I ever feel WAY more comfortable without those drains in!
I had continual burning pain from the drain on the right side, and a kind of skin irritation pain, that wasn’t bad, but it was noticeable and unpleasant.
As soon as the drain came out, the pain left and hasn’t come back since. Hurrah!
I am feeling very happy today to not need drains any longer and to have them out!
