The tubes were not painful

After surgery I went home with tubing. I had a couple of bandages, one under my arm pit and one over my breast site where they had did an incision. It was not painful. I had to empty them whenever they got full and had to record my drainage. I didn't sleep well. I found myself sleeping up on pillows because I couldn't lay flat. It really did me well. And then I had the tubing out, which was uncomfortable but it was over like that.
