Milking it for all it’s worth

2 days ago, even though I didn’t want to look, I realised something was wrong. Blocked drains. To fix it, the nurse at the cancer center had to Milk the Drains…..

I have dealt with my infertility. I was the one who chose to go from lumpectomy to mastectomy. but MILKING????? really, there is not a better term for a nurse pulling on rubber tubing coming out of what used to be my chest, into little rubber bottles that have to be emptied several times per day. MILKING??????
