Hi, I had bi-mast. Had drains . It helps to have some-one
help you with the drains. You can do them yourself but
you will be sore . Have a lot of pillows. it helps to be
propped up .I wish I would have gotten the sit up kind of
pillow. Keep your pain meds on schedule. Your doc
should handle the bandage.I had to go in about 10 days
later for bandage and drain removal. Other than that
have a lot of books and movies because you just rest
and heal. I hope all goes well.
