the part nobody tells you about, and if you are having a mastectomy, sorry, I am about to spill the secret, is that taking the drains out is PAINFUL!
While I am so so so happy to be rid of those rubber tubes, the removal process was excruciating. Fast, like 2 seconds on each side, especially since he takes out 2 at once. But man, he just YANKED those suckers right out! I’m still sore and it’s been 2 hours!
But I am drain-free and can move a lot better, especially on the non-nodes side. There might be a bit of knitting in my future today
