I've had a couple people ask me about the drain removal and whether it hurt. The first drain removed was the one that was bothering me so much and that slid out like a hot knife through butter - no issues at all. The second one from my pubic area also came right out. The third one she pulled and it got stuck on a stitch, and that hurt. Then she cut the stitch and pulled and YOWZA - that one hurt coming out. But it is a brief hurt with instant relief that foreign bodies are no longer in your flesh!
You are left with some pretty gross looking holes. Wanna see - yeah, I KNOW you do!
Disgusting, huh? Those 3 holes were covered in gauze with instructions to remove the gauze today and just cover with antibiotic ointment. They are already closed up a lot this morning.
Well I'm off to take my first glorious hot shower in a week!
