drainage tube

  1. bride2b2016
    So I understand that after surgery I may need a drainage tube. When I had my appendix removed, I had one in and when the doctor removed it, it was painful. Is it really painful or do they give you medicine or something?

    I had a tube through my nose, it was uncomfortable, removal gagged me, but was very quick.... Hang in there.

    After my sleeve with Dr. Almanza, I had a tube hanging from my stomach. When they removed it there was a funny feeling but no pain.

    I had a drainage tube with a bulb, from. My stomach. No pain on removal, but felt really weird.

    Mine was removed at my follow-up visit a week after surgery. It wasn't painful, just felt weird.

    My surgeon doesn't use a drainage tube.

    How long did it take to heal after tube was removed? I had surgery 6+ weeks ago and have been packing wound until 3 days ago as it seems to be at the point to let it close. Thoughts? Advice? Experience w/ this?
