I'm 3 weeks post-lumpectomy; had drains placed on Friday because the fluid build-up was so enormous and out of control.
Saw the surgeon today - drains still in. When can I expect to feel better from the drains? (Yes, the pressure is gone, but I'm horribly sore and feel the constant drainage.) Any idea how long the drains will be left in for? Dr was vague today.
