First post here. I am 2 weeks post op of my surgeries and I am absolutely miserable. Depressed, in pain, uncomfortable. I feel like I have been running a low grade fever for about a week now. I get chills while I am sweating under a blanket. I have 5 drains (3 on left 2 on right) and they HURT. They won't put out much fluid for a few days and then they produce a lot. My chest is very heavy with the expanders(he already did a fill 2 days after I left the hospital) and the left one feels like it is slipping down. I wasn't able to get more pain medication so I have been winging it. Please help if you can. If you have any advice on recovery from this procedure. I just feel like everything has gone so fast.
