Got a quick question: I need a online invitation site that has a Medifast menu selection option? Many thanks for any response. My 2nd question... May anyone tell me what is the actual purpose of the drains? I'm getting ready to have.

Surgery.

On the 22nd and my dr. really didnt go in depth about what the purpose of the drains are. Thanks..

I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the right answer. I'll do some research and get back to you if I got an anything. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could give you help..

Yeah the drains are used for that. I had one for about a week and a half, and it's just so theres a lot less pressure on your tummy. you also have to drian it yourself every few hours or so, check w/ your doc when you see them next:)..

My drain was taken out just before Ieft the hospital. I think most people's are...

Comment #3

I don't remember this when my mom went through.

Surgery.

What is this?..

Comment #4

Never had a drain, no problems healing or with any "fluid" build up. I feel lucky my surgeon did not do that!..

Comment #5

I didn't have drains either. Nor was it ever mentioned at any of my appointments...

I had a drain to help get rid of the extra fluid. It had to be emptied on several occasions before it was taken out right before I left the hospital for home. I made sure to have my pain meds before they took it out because I heard that it can be painful to have them pulled out. It felt weird, but didn't hurt much because I had made sure that the meds had kicked in before I let the nurse take mine out. Not all surgeons use drains, but it seems like they should be encouraged because a lot of waste can.

Leave.

Your body when you have one...

I was told that after.

Surgery.

Internally there "could" be fluid still around all your organs and the drain allows the fluids to drain out of your abdominal cavity. I had no medication when they pulled it out and it did feel weird but it didn't hurt...I was just thrilled to have it out after 2 1/2 days of carrying it around with me and I knew that when it was out I could go home, which I did about 1/2 hour later....hoorah!..

I had two of them for a week and they had to be emptied a couple of times a day at first - less as time went on. The removal was odd, but not painful. They also told me that if I saw "milky" stuff in the drain after drinking one of my protein shakes I should call because that would indicate a leak somewhere. Luckily, I never saw anything like that, but believe me, I was watching for it - LOL...
