Yes, we have a drain primarily to remove excess fluid and also to help identify “bleeding” complications. It will be removed before you leave the hospital. Our doctors use drains because it removes the blood in the abdominal cavity, which will reduce the pain and the adhesions of the patient. Ultimately, having a drain is an easy way to avoid post-surgery complications. Drains are removed on the 2nd day, which coincides with the period with the most complications. Most of the time, when the complications happen, we can be aware of that and help resolve them.
