It has been 11 days since my prostate removal surgery and I still have drains in the surgergical area. One of the drains is removing about 300 ml of urine a day. The doctor says the drains must remain in until they are down to less than 30ml a day. Has anyone else experienced this situation? My response from the doctor was not to worry, it just takes time to heal, but others who have the surgery had the drains for no more than 7 days. I am starting to worry that I have a hole in the bladder that is not going to heal. Thanks for any insight someone may have.
