drain tube removal
I'm have a drain tube removed tomorrow and kind of nervous.  I had a staph infection left over from a hematoma following my lumpectomy in Sept of 08.  I just got out of the hospital from the infection last Thursday.  Anyway tomorrow the doctor is going to take out the drain.  Do they numb you for this?

Mine didn't.  It was a snip, snip and then a yank.  Hurts for a moment then all better.

When my drainage tube was removed there was no pain whatsoever.
A friend had suggested taking tylenol but,  I had decided not to go with it.  It was fine.
Good luck.

I had 4 Jackson Pratt tubes to be removed, It was fast and very little discomfort. I wish you the Best!
