I did not have a catheter or a drain post op!..

Comment #2

Yep, I had a catheter. Removed after less than a day. Not exactly pleasant, but not nearly as bad as the 'catheter' they used for my colonoscopy......

Comment #3

I had a catheder and a drain. The catheder was removed the next day. The drain was removed on the second day. Both were not a big deal, but were certainly reminders of how I just had major.

I had a catheter, too. Fortunately they put it in after I was under anasthesia. Removing it isn't too bad; the real trauma is if you're awake when they put it in - I was before my c-section and it was rough....

A g tube.

Comment #8

I woke up with a catheter in - I was glad for it - not having to get up that first night to go to the bathroom was a bonus for me. Came out easily the next day. I did not have any drain tubes..

Ask your surgeon what his routine is - they all have different preferences...
