I am getting ADCF surgery in a week and had a friend of mine send me her pics to help explain the after to my kids. She had lots of pics of her scar as it healed and pics of her in the hospital. In one pic while she was still in the hospital she had a tube sticking out of the bottom of the gauze covering her incision on her neck which she said was a drain tube that they removed before she left the hospital.
Is it normal to have a drain tube below your incision after ADCF surgery while in the hospital? Just curious and want to prepare my husband who can be a bit squeamish if so.
